Trees in KKL-JNF Forests
Forests and parks were not always part of Israel's landscape. The first Jewish pioneers who came to the land of Israel towards the end of the twentieth century found a desolate land that provided no shade whatsoever.
KKL-JNF has planted over 240,000,000 trees on an area of about 247,000 acres. Today, KKL-JNF is the only organization in Israel that is responsible for afforestation, as stipulated in the covenant signed between KKL-JNF and the state of Israel.

KKL-JNF plants a variety of trees in Israel's forests – conifers, deciduous trees and fruit trees. Some of the trees are indigenous to this region and some are species that were brought to Israel from other countries.
