Complete chloroplast genomes were characterized for two economically important tree species, Cinnamomum camphora and Cinnamomum parthenoxylon. The chloroplast genomes are 152,721 bp (C. camphora) and 152,760 bp (C. parthenoxylon) long, respectively, and both comprise a pair of inverted repeat (IR) regions, separated by a large single-copy (LSC) region and a small single-copy (SSC) region. The same panel of 112 gene species were annotated for both species, including 78 protein-coding (PCG), 30 tRNA, and 4 rRNA gene species. Phylogenetic analysis suggests that the species delimitation and interrelationship of C. camphora and C. parthenoxylon may need further investigation.
