Discover Forests

Lebanon has Mediterranean vegetation. On the mountains are holm oaks, pine trees and the famous Lebanese cedar, though Lebanon's symbolic tree is becoming rare. The Lebanese forest and its legendary perfumes only represent 7% of the territory. You can however admire the beautiful relics in the forest of Becharre, on Mount Liban. Lebanon remains the country with the highest number of dense forests in the Middle East having several varieties of pine trees growing on the mountains, and fruit trees growing on the coast.
