I think i’m going to start a "Living Landmark Series’. This tree has a story. A good friend of mind had visited this tree 25 years ago and this week-end he organised for me to venture with him to see this Living Landmark. This is a ‘Cedrus libari’ or known as a Lebanon Cedar. A tall long lived Cedar with spreading branches that grows in Lebanon & Turkey. Quite a rare tree for Australia. It was his second visit and my first, although i can see this tree from my backyard perched below ’Cook’s Hill’ in Korumburra in South Gippsland Australia. It is estimated that this tree is around 100 years old planted around the same time as the Korumburra Botanical Gardens somewhere around 1910-1920.

    Trees are so beautiful & as I observe them I often wonder what interesting stories they could tell us about the history of their area…..a great shot mate.
