Cedars Forever – Come to Life
“He that plants trees loves others beside himself.”
Thomas Fuller (1654-1734). Comp., Gnomologia: Adages and Proverbs, 2248, 1732
The Cedars Forever program was developed to ensure the continuity of the Cedar – a species in danger of extinction. In order to restore Lebanon’s mountains to their original glory, Cedars Forever is setting out to plant trees in Lebanon, to start with, namely in Barouk, a forest which constitutes a major part of the Shouf Nature Reserve.
As a first step, Cedars Forever plans to plant hundreds of thousands of Cedar trees over a period of 10 years, in a completely deforested 14 million square meter area. In the future it hopes to expand to other areas in Lebanon.
Individuals and organizations wishing to contribute to the program, may do so by adopting a Cedar. For a $150 (225,000 LBP), a Cedar will be planted bearing the name of the person who adopted it as well as a serial number.
