The area now known as Lebanon, were exporting those trees
from time immemorial, the Phoenecians were exporting them,
highly desired throughout the Mediteranean.
The ark of the covenant was probably cedar.

Your blue stamp is Lebanon 1953

Trees

Peduncle = the stalk holding the acorns

The leaves of this tree adorn literally thousands of stamps
they are the icon for "strength"
This tree supports the largest herbivore population
of any tree > 455 species.

When you think about it,
a tree is really just 3,000,430,0023 postage stamps.
Harvested pine one would hope.

Seeing Dianne's maple tree stamps I remembered I liked the Maple leaves stamps. Now where in Canada can one find a Maple leaf stamp? let me look . . .

My favorite series of stamps from Canada are
the 1971 Maple Leaves in Four Seasons.



I remember the Maple trees in my dad's yard and trying to catch those propellers (seeds) when they fell in the late Spring. Oh, and raking the leaves in the Fall.

My great-grandfather planted Maple trees along the road in front of his farm and by the time I played around them as a young fellow they had grown to at least a hundred feet high, great for climbing and sitting under and in. No acorns or any nuts falling on your head.
