Siberian pine (Cedar) is a unique tree that since ancient times people have admired not only for its beauty and power, but also for the healing properties of its wood, bark, needles, resin, cones and seeds. For the cedar, a legend has been created, calling him the only tree on earth planted by the very hands of God.
Local Siberians have always believed that cedar has a soul. Modern biologists explain this with the astonishing fact that the cedar's biological rhythm is very different from the rest of the trees and reminds the human. Unlike other trees, cedar is not active at specific times, but depending on the surrounding circumstances. For example, the awakening of the cedar in clear and warm weather occurs at dawn, and in cold and foggy days it can "sleep" by 10 am.
One hectare of cedar forest produces about 30kg of organic volatile substances (phytoncides) with bactericidal properties for one day. Researchers' research has shown that this volume of phytoncides is capable of destroying the amount of disease-causing microbes in a large city. The air in cedar forests can be called not just pure but practically sterile.
