Cedar of Lebanon TreeCEDAR OF LEBANON

Cedrus Libani

The magnificent cedar of Lebanon (Cedrus Libani) resembles the larch more than it does any other of our pines; differing in having its leaves, which are arranged in the same manner, evergreen, in the greater size of its cones, and its broad, spreading top.

This tree has nearly disappeared on Mount Lebanon, but is found growing naturally, in great numbers, on a branch of the Taurus Mountains, in Asia Minor. It is successfully cultivated, as an ornamental tree, in every part of Great Britain and in France, and would doubtless succeed in the warmer parts of New England.
