My grandfather chose this place as it was a central place for trade. The entire habitation of north Lebanon is resting upon the biggest cedar tree in the world. Every village from. Bcharri to Ehden, will come to Hasroun for trade. The Cedar on the Lebanese flag is a representation of the gigantic Cedar tree  which forms up the villages of North Lebanon. As it was written in the bible.

Daniel 4:11 “The tree grew large, became strong, and its top reached the sky. It could be seen to the ends of the earth.”

This is also presented in masonic books.

After the Arez or Cedar was chopped down, the fruits fell down with it, many fruit seeds dropped into the soil thus creating new life. This is the magic of the mountain. Providing villagers with work, food and shelter. It is perfect amount of heat from the sun, and coolness from the snow.

Nuts, seeds, and leaves have all been used as natural medicines and remedies. This secret was only revealed to me in my recent trip by the hermits and monks of the monasteries which are surrounded all over Northern Lebanon. Every aspect of the tree has a medical benefit. Whether it’s apple leaves or tree bark from a Cedar, they are all magical and filled with life.
