Israel-->The World's Model For Planting Forests
Israel 21C/The Lid ^ | 4/12/09 | Yidwithlid

When you are in Israel, it is very easy to see where Israeli run territory ends and territory run by the Palestinian Authority begins, just look for the end of the forest. Growing trees in Israel has been a priority since before the state of Israel was formed. It is a tradition that people living in the diaspora contribute to the JNF to plant trees in Israel, and when Jews visit Israel, they plant trees, as my family did on our visit three years ago. During our next trip we will go and visit our trees.

It is precisely that tradition of planting both by Israeli Jews and Jews in the galut that made Israel the only country in the world that is actually growing the number of trees within its borders. That's why Israel has become the model for planting forests.

( The Lord will surely comfort Zion and will look with compassion on all her ruins; he will make her deserts like Eden, her wastelands like the garden of the Lord. Joy and gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and the sound of singing. )

( But now listen, O Jacob, my servant, Israel, whom I have chosen. This is what the Lord says—he who made you, who formed you in the womb, and who will help you: Do not be afraid, O Jacob, my servant, Jeshurun, whom I have chosen. For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants. They will spring up like grass in a meadow, like poplar trees by flowing streams. One will say, ‘I belong to the Lord’; another will call himself by the name of Jacob; still another will write on his hand, ‘The Lord’s,’ and will take the name Israel." )

Isaiah 44:1-5

( "1. The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.
2. It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God.
3. Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees.
4. Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you." (Isaiah 35:1-4 )
