Your Tribute Helps Green the Earth
Due to various forces of nature and humankind’s interventions nearly all of the world’s nations have experienced a net loss in their total number of trees this century. Fortunately, this can all be changed as demonstrated by the efforts to the greening of the land of Israel. Although a majority of the country is located in an arid desert, with limited vegetation and no natural forests, it has become one of only two nations that experienced an increase in its tree population. This success is a result of over sixty years of hand-planting of trees, which ensures the fertility of the land.
The planting of trees facilitates many known environmental advantages. In particular, trees reduce carbon emissions, clean the air, conserve water, provide habitat for wildlife, and improve soil conditions, all of which help to protect against climate change.
This tree planting initiative has vastly changed the Israel’s arid desert landscapes to that of vibrant park lands. In all, over 250 million trees have been planted on over 250,000 acres of land, generating over 240 reservoirs and dams, and founding more than 2,000 parks. These efforts have been focused on the following regions: the southern Hebron Hills, the mountainous slopes in the Galilee, the southern hills of the Negev, Be’er Sheva, and as well as for the beautification of urban areas and creation of recreational parks.
