Descriptions : Turkish Toroslarda gençleştirme bakımı yapılmış ve korumaya alınmış iki "lübnan sediri" (Cedrus libani)ağacının görünümü. Çamgiller ailesinden sedir cinsinden olan lübnan sediri Toros Dağların'da, Hatay'da Torosların devamı olan Amanoslar'da ve Lübnan'da yetişmektedir. Lübnan bayrağının simgesi de olan bu sedir türünün ağaç sayısı Lübnan'da oldukça azalmış olmasına karşın Türkiye'de bir takım projelerle korunmakta ve rehabilite edilmektedir. Toroslar'da yaygın oluşu ve en güzel örneklerinin bulunması nedeniyle Toros Sediri ve ayrıca yetiştirme yörelerindeki halk tarafından "katran ağacı" olarak da adlandırılmaktadır. Odununun kolay işlenebilir, güzel kokulu ve dayanıklı olması, iğne yapraklarının hayvan yemi olarak kullanılması ve aşırı otlatma nedeniyle yaklaşık 5000 yıldan beri sürekli tahrip edilmektedirler. Lübnan sediri ağaçlarının 1000 yıl kadar yaşayabildiği bildirilmektedir. (Foto: Aydınlar Köyü, Erdemli, Mersin)
English The view of two "lebanon cedar" (Cedrus libani) trees rejuvenated, protected and maintained, on Taurus Mountains. Lebanon cedar from pinaceae family, grow on the Taurus mountains, Amanos mountains which are extension of Taurus mountains in Hatay province, and in Lebanon. Although the amount of this cedar species which is the icon of Lebanon flag, is quite low in Lebanon, it is protected and rehabilitated by some of the projects in Turkey. Due to the presence of most beautiful examples on Taurus mountains, it is also named as “Taurus cedar” or “tar tree” by the local people. It has been destroyed for around 5000 years because of its easily processable wood, fragrant and durability and the needle leaves used as animal feed. It is reported that Lebanon cedar trees can live up to 1,000 years (Photo: Aydınlar Village, Erdemli, Mersin)
