Aleppo pine, Lebanon Mountains, Bekaa, cedar tree, wild animals

The cedar tree that appears on Lebanonís national flag as the countryís symbol once widely covered the Lebanon Mountains. However, only a few small stands remain in the mountains, where they are protected. The slopes now carry widespread Mediterranean brush vegetation, as well as scattered patches of stone pine, Aleppo pine, and ornamental cypress. Colorful spring wildflowers are abundant. During migration season, thousands of birds pass through the Bekaa. Few other wild animals are left in Lebanon.
