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.
But adopting a Cedar means much more than that as well.
