Lebanon Mountains, pines, Commercial fishing, local production, trees

The famous cedars of the Lebanon Mountains were depleted centuries ago and only a few protected stands remain. While commercial forestry is now limited, pines and other trees are logged for local production. Commercial fishing is also minor, but it is locally important as a major source of food. Commercial mining is limited to large-scale quarrying of Lebanonís plentiful limestone and smaller-scale production of gypsum.
