As most of you probably know, Lebanon is known for its Cedars yet today cedar forests cover only 0.0002% of Lebanon’s surface, mainly due to the climate change, over-harvesting and of course the lack of initiatives from Lebanese authorities. Luckily though, a number of local NGOs and the private sector have been working for years to preserve Cedar forests and expand them by planting new cedar trees. One of the most recent initiatives is the “Adopt A Cedar Tree” which is a collaboration between Byblos Bank, Jouzour Loubnan and Cedars Box to plant thousands of Cedars in Kfardebian, Zaarour, Ehden and Ehmej.
I received a complimentary Cedars Box as a gift on Christmas and already planted it in Kfardebian. I was given precise GPS coordinates and an official certificate of Adoption soon after I filled all the needed information. I will share a picture of the tree as soon as I visit it.
