    Cedars

    The Cedars of God symbolize resilience and immortality. They have the most aromatic and durable wood. This reserve is one of the last remaining examples of the extensive forests of Lebanon. The thick Cedar forest once shaded and covered the whole of the mountains of Lebanon from the North to the South. After years of persistent deforestation, these forests have been markedly reduced.
    The Cedar stands eternally tall on the Lebanese flag and has played a large role in putting Lebanon on the global map. It has significant religious importance and is mentioned about 75 times in the Holy Bible. David used it in building his palace and Solomon in the construction of his temple and palace. The Egyptian Pharaohs also used its wood to build their sarcophagi and ships.
