Morocco represents the most important and main cedar production of Africa on 134,000 hectares. This scented and precious hardwood is a national treasure, a tourist pride and above all a considerable economic resource for the local inhabitants of the region as well as for Moroccan carpentry professionals.
This cradle of Moroccan cedar is described as the Switzerland of Morocco. Many families, tourists and foreigners often come to visit and picnic near the cedars to admire this fabulous landscape of majestic trees about 40m high and 900 years of age.
The cedar forest has also seen the birth of small stalls selling peanuts that hundreds of tourists buy and distribute to another curiosity in the region, which is the Barbary macaque, the only African macaque in the wild which has made the cedar forest its home.
