The Bible often mentions Lebanese cedars. The oldest of these giants reach the age of about 3000 years. Today, Lebanese cedar has survived only high in the mountains. There are only 6 small cedar groves. The most famous of them is called "CEDARES". Despite the fact that these trees have been protected since ancient times, their barbaric felling took place regularly. This, as well as the constantly deteriorating ecology, leads to the gradual extinction of the Lebanese giants.
