it was named after the Biblical Lebanon, yes, but not because of trees.
Lebanon, IN was named because of the trees...hickory trees.
"Lebanon (commonly pronounced "Leba-nen") is a city in and the county seat of Boone County, Indiana, United States. The population was 15,792 at the 2010 census. The city was named Lebanon because a stand of hickory trees on the site reminded one of the town's commissioners of the Biblical cedars of Lebanon."Source(s): http://www.livingplaces.com/PA/History_of_Pennsylv... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lebanon%2C_Indiana
