Cedar of Lebanon Trees: A Field Guide
Towering, yet slightly eccentric, Cedar of Lebanon has a grandfatherly presence, adding distinction to any landscape.
Cedrus libani is the best known member of the cedar family and makes an appearance in the Bible. Around the Mediterranean and indeed Lebanon, where it is most at home, Cedrus libani has more of a consistent spruce-like shape. It is well-adapted to growing at altitude, yet when cedar is transplanted to more exposed areas, like an English park, it takes on a hardier character, still growing tall and wide, while losing a limb here and there.
