Product Description

The famed cedars of Lebanon were desirable for construction due to their natural resistance to rot and insects.  Due to over harvesting, very few old trees remain.  Conservation efforts in the Middle East are helping to protect this species.  This female cone is from a cedar tree native to the Mediterranean. They have needle-like leaves which are clustered on the branches, and can grow to be 40 m tall.
