Cedar of Lebanon

This Cedar of Lebanon tree is in the "Fuente del Berro" park in Madrid, Spain. The park also has quite a few Himalayan Cedar trees as well. Although it is not the biggest garden-park in Madrid it has one of the most diverse collections of trees.

It may come as a surprise to some that the tree we commonly call "Cedar" in the United States is not really a true Cedar. There are only 2-3 species of true Cedars in the world; Lebanon, Himalayan and Atlas (some consider the Atlas as a subspecies of Lebanon).

More Evergreen trees...
Aleppo pine
Coastal Redwood
Giant Sequoia
Monkey puzzle tree
Norfolk Island Pine
Pine nuts
Ponderosa Pine
