Cedar of Lebanon--Biblical Significance: Commonly referred to in Scripture as the cedars of Lebanon, this aromatic, durable wood was highly desirable for building in Iron Age Israel. David used it in building his palace and Solomon used it in the construction of the temple and a palace for himself. He was said to make the cedar as plentiful in Jerusalem as sycamore-fig trees in the Shephelah . The second temple was also constructed from cedars (Ezra 3:7).
