Genus The Cedars are tall evergreen trees with broad irregular crowns that occur along the Southern Mediterranean from the Atlas Mountains of North Africa to Cyprus, Lebanon, Syria and Turkey, with another distinct species in the western Himalaya. Their needle-like leaves are arranged spirally on young shoots, and in whorls on short spur-like side-shoots; ovoid cones break up to release the seeds while still attached to the tree.
