We are a constituent Forest of the Tall Cedars of Lebanon of North America, an appendant Masonic organization, devoted to fostering friendship and fellowship among Freemasons and to all mankind


  1. To provide social entertainment and clean wholesome recreation; promote a wider acquaintance and a more sincere friendship among Master Masons; perpetuate itself as a fraternal, charitable and social organization
  2. To bind Master Masons more closely together and cooperate fully with all Masonic Bodies in upholding the Ancient Landmarks of Free Masonry, and by precept and example to hold aloft and further the Tenets of the Craft
  3. To create and maintain cooperation, peace and harmony among Master Masons and to discountenance jealousy, rivalry and ill feeling among Master Masons and Masonic Bodies
  4. To emphasize that a Master Mason is not only a member of the Blue Lodge to which he belongs, but an integral part of the Masonic Fraternity as a whole
  5. To teach that a Master Mason should not be judged by his worldly wealth or honors, his social status, or the manner in which he earns his livelihood, but from the viewpoint of true equality
  6. To urge all Tall Cedars to meet upon a Common Level at all times, to practice true peace and harmony, and to be ever mindful of a Brother's welfare
  7. To remind all Tall Cedars that they were first Master Masons and should refrain from saying or doing anything which would bring discredit upon the White Lambskin, which is the badge of a Mason; or upon the Pyramid which is the badge of a Tall Cedar
  8. To teach that Tall Cedars, as Master Masons, are brothers upon the street as well as in the Lodge Room or the meeting place of the Forest, and thus should practice true brotherly love and affection towards one another
  9. To scatter sunshine, afford surcease from the cares and labors of the day, provide entertainment and refreshment without excess; and adhere to the cardinal principles of Cedarism, HOSPITALITY, SOCIABILITY and GOOD FELLOWSHIP
  10. To establish and maintain Research Laboratories in assisting in the combating of the "Killer Disease"-MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY, which activity has been adopted as the National Objective of Cedarism. To promote a stronger bond with all Freemasons and to further the goals and tenants of Freemasonry

Muscular Dystrophy

The Tall Cedars of Lebanon of North America has faithfully supported the goals of the Muscular Dystrophy Association through financial assistance since 1951, longer than any other organization.  The Supreme Forest supports a Goodwill Ambassador to represent the Tall Cedars of North America and many Forests support a Goodwill Ambassador.

The Montgomery Forest has sponsored two Good Will Ambassadors, Matthew Haley and Claire Menke. We're so proud of all that these amazing people have accomplished.

The Tall Cedars of Lebanon is open to all Master Masons.  Contact Romain Tweedy for more information.
