Cedars of Lebanon.JerzyStrzelecki

Despite centuries of deforestation, some Cedars of Lebanon still stand in a highly protected reserve on the elevations of Mount Lebanon; it is now a World Heritage Site. These large evergreens can reach a height of 115 feet and circumference of 45 feet. A symbol of Lebanon, they appear on the national flag and are also known as the Cedars of God. (Jerzy Strzelecki)
