History

The sacred Cedars of Lebanon and the Atlas Mountains became victim of their own popularity a long time ago. The decimation started in pre-Biblical times and still continues. At one time these grand forests of lofty Cedars must have been overwhelming in their awe-inspiring beauty. Lebanon and Atlas Cedars are large, regal trees that can live up to 2000 years. But despite their sacredness they were not protected: King Solomon ordered vast tracks to be cut down for the construction of his temple and palace and even long before his time, the Gilgamesh epic tells the story of another misguided adventurer, who abused the majestic trees for his own glory. Although he failed on account of the glory, he managed to decimate the wonderful forests. Subsequent grazing by farm animals have prevented the forest's recovery and today little of it remains in tact. A similar fate is in store for Atlas Cedar, which became the substitute for Lebanon Cedar and which at present is becoming threatened in its own habitat
