Campus Nature Trail

Stop 13

point-13 keele hall and lebanon cedar

In front of the Hall is an Italianate parterre garden planted with Yews and roses and lined with sedums. Next to that is a fountain and to its right a Cedar of Lebanon Cedrus libani.

This tree is a native of Syria and SE Turkey. Mature trees are distinctive with their branches forming large horizontal plates.

It is this feature that makes the tree susceptible to heavy snow falls, the accumulation of which can cause the branches to break - as is the case with our tree.
