Lebanese Cedar tree


Cedars of Lebanon
The ancient reputation of the Cedars of Lebanon is known worldwide. As a symbol of the history of Lebanon, we would like to help commemorate it's existence, assure its continuity and support the inspiration it offers.
"Cedrus Libani", the Latin name for the Cedars of Lebanon holds in it an image of the rich history of a near-timeless earth. The Cedars of Lebanon are the most famous cedars. The width of their enormous trunks, with their furrowed gray bark, can reach 15 meters in circumference. Moreover, Cedars may grow up to 40 meters and live for about 3000 years, which is why they are labeled îimmortal╣.
Lebanon and its cedars live a wonderful love story and are life-long partners. Lebanon's name and Lebanon's identity is tightly related to the cedars.
As you know, the Cedar's image is printed on Lebanon's flag, stamps, currency, auto plates and medals of honor.
However, danger of survival surrounds this ancient tree.
So please get involved! Save a species facing extinction!
Plant your own 'royal' Cedar!

WONDERFUL OCCASIONS TO BUY A CEDAR:
