In Lebanon, climate change devours ancient cedar trees

High up in Lebanon’s mountains, the lifeless grey trunks of dead cedar trees stand stark in the deep green forest, witnesses of the climate change that has ravaged them.
 
Often dubbed “Cedars of God”, the tall evergreens hark back millenia and are a source of great pride and a national icon in the small Mediterranean country.
 
The cedar tree, with its majestic horizontal branches, graces the nation’s flag and its bank notes.
