A Remarkable cedar of Lebanon

Tree Information
Common Name: cedar of Lebanon
Scientific name: Cedrus libani
Category: Other
Notes: This is the second church named Sardis that has been built and located on this property. The story has been told that a former Pastor purchased two seedlings on a trip and brought them back and planted them on the property. A storm destroyed one of the trees and we had to prune the present tree in order to preserve it. I do not know what year it was planted or how big the tree is, but our church building and its surroundings would not be the same without its presence. Children have played around this tree for many, many years!
