Ancient Cedar on Batumi Boulevard

This original, rare and centuries-old Cedar can be found on the old boulevard of Batumi , near the central fountains. The height of the pyramid-shaped tree exceeds 25 meters. Its planting is associated with the name of the main gardener of the boulevard - Michael D Alfons. More than 100 Cedar trees grow on Batumi Boulevard, but the one that we captured in the photo is the most outstanding, strange and impressive. Cedar (lat. Cedrus) is an evergreen tree that belongs to the genus of coniferous plants. The plant includes 4 species, 3 of which (Lebanese cedar, Atlas and Short-coniferous) are common in the eastern and southern parts of the Mediterranean region, and one (Himalayan cedar) is in the western part of the Himalayas. Also in the Crimea, the Caucasus and the southern part of Central Asia, where 3 species are cultivated: Lebanese cedar, Atlas and Himalayan cedar. Himalayan cedar (lat. Cedrus Deodara), which is 50-60 m high,, is the most widespread in Georgia. Cedar trees were brought to Georgia in the second half of the 19th century. It has a strength, dense and durable wood, which is used as a building and furniture material, as well as in shipbuilding. Since ancient times, cedar has fascinated people with its natural strength, beauty and healing properties. It was called the sustenance tree, the secret, the gift of the gods. Since ancient times, cedar trees have been considered a source of miraculous energy. The ancient Sumerians revered the cedar as a sacred tree. The decoration of the tomb of the Egyptian king Tutankhamun was also made of cedar wood. Due to its properties, cedar resin was one of the components of mummification mixtures, and with the help of cedar oil, the priceless ancient Egyptian papyri were preserved to this day.
