Cyprus Cedar

Wednesday, 20. June 2012 Website Admin

As indicated by the name, the Cyprus Cedar (Cedrus Brevifolia) only occurs on the island of Cyprus. Cedar forests are said to once have covered whole areas until the Phoenicians came 3,000 years ago and used it for shipbuilding. Only the trees in the Cedar Valley and on Tripylos Mountain were left and today cover the hillsides like a dense green carpet. Also, the Cyprus Cedar is suited perfectly for bonsai cultivation.
