What is the Box tree?
        BOX TREE
     Isa 41:19. A small evergreen tree, either the same with or closely resembling the shrubby box of our gardens. One species (buxus longifolia) is found on Lebanon, and may once have been common in Palestine. It is believed that the Phoenicians imported the wood of other species from Chittim, and used it with ivory for inlaid work. The perfect proportions of this tree, its perennial beauty of foliage, and its utility illustrate the prosperity and grace which God will bestow on Zion. Isa 60:13.
