Cedars of Lebanon


Cedars of Lebanon is the important forest. The cedar forests of Lebanon enjoy the unique distinction as the oldest documented forests in history. The cedars were important enough in the history of man to be traceable to the very earliest written records, that of the Sumerians in the third millennium BC. The Sumerian Epic of Gilgamesh designates the cedar groves of Lebanon as the dwelling of the gods. The Lebanon Cedar is mentioned over 70 times in the Bible. It has always been the national emblem of Lebanon. There are 18 cedars reserves in Lebanon, most significantly the Barouk forest and the forest of the Cedars of God in Bsharri.
