The Lebanon cedar is under threat

Lebanon's national tree, the cedar, is known for its resilience. And yet, climate change could wipe out most of them. 🇱🇧

    We have the same problem with our BC cedar trees. Which are nothing the same except the name. They have very shallow roots and rely on the rains off the Pacific Ocean. But it rains less. Many baby trees have died and large ones are stressed due to hotter days more often. The coastal forest is called a rain forest but compared to when I was young there are so many less misty days and Grey days and so much more sunshine. Everything was always green. Not any more.
