The majestic cedar of Lebanon is native to the Near East, including Turkey, Syria and of course Lebanon. It is very slow-growing but will eventually reach a great height (24m-30m), becoming an impressive feature in the landscape. It is also very long-lived, readily reaching 200-300 years.
This species is listed as "vulnerable" by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and recently scientists from the Royal Botanic Gardens of Edinburgh started a project in collaboration with the University of Beirut to raise seedlings of this iconic species.
