#22 The Cedars of God

Time, along with the exploitation of the Cedarsโ€™ wood, has led to a decrease in the number of cedar trees in Lebanon. However, Lebanon is still widely known for its cedar tree history, as they are the emblem of the country and the symbol of the Lebanese flag.The remaining trees survive in mountainous areas, where they are the dominant tree species. This is the case on the slopes of Mount Makmel that tower over theย Kadisha Valley, where the Cedars of God are found at an altitude of more than 2,000 metres (6,600ย ft). Four trees have reached a height of 35 metres (115ย ft), with their trunks reaching 12โ€“14 metres (39โ€“46ย ft). In 1998, the Cedars of God were added to theย UNESCOย list ofย World Heritage Sites. The forest is rigorously protected. It is possible to tour if escorted by an authorized guide. After a preliminary phase in which the land was cleared ofย detritus, the sick plants treated, and the ground fertilized, the "Committee of the Friends of the Cedar Forest" initiated a reforestation program in 1985. These efforts will only be appreciable in a few decades due to the slow growth of cedars. In these areas the winter offers incredible scenery, and the trees are covered with a blanket of snow. . #nature #naturephotography #photography #travel #love #photooftheday #landscape #instagood #naturelovers #beautiful #picoftheday #photo #instagram #art #ig #sunset #wildlife #travelphotography #sky #flowers #like #mountains #adventure #follow #naturelover #spring #life #photographer #beauty #bhfyp
