Cedars Forever is commited to the preservation and reforestation of Lebanon’s cedar reserves to make sure the cedar is not spiralled into existing solely on our flag.  Cedar Nation is their ambitious project that allows individuals  and companies to partake in the upheaval of Lebanon’s natural cedar heritage one tree at a time.

 As a preliminary step, Cedar Nation will be based in Barouk which is the major part of the Shouf Cedar Nature Reserve - the biggest, best maintained Cedar forest in Lebanon, home to 3 million Cedars, 524 species of plants as well as a considerable number of birds and mammals.

On a personal level, I was overwhelemed when I learned of this. I already got through the first approval stage, and hopefull soon enough our copmany will be adopting at least one tree in support of our ‘Go Green’ moto.  Additionally, I am very excited to visit the Shouf Natural reserve and will be planning a trip really soon.

Let us hope that others will catch up to this whether it is for patriotic or ecological reasons.

Adoption Facts
When you adopt a Cedar you receive:

 

  • A membership card
  • An adoption certificate
  • Regular updates on the status of your tree through newsletters and photographs
  • Invitations to Cedars Forever’s private functions and festivities

But adopting a Cedar means much more than that as well.
The knowledge that you are contributing in the reforestation of Lebanese mountains and making Lebanon a greener and healthier place is gratifying enough on its own.

Adoption includes:

  • A 10-year guarantee: If for some reason or other your Cedar does not survive, another one will be planted in its place.
  • Pure breeds: Cedars Forever respects genealogy and only plants true, home grown Lebanese Cedars.
  • Accreditation: All of Cedars Forever’s activities are accredited and approved by the competent authorities.
