Photos & History

Trees for the Holy Land is dedicated to the reforestation of Israel, the most sacred place on our earth. In the time of the Bible, the Holy Land was lush, green, "the land of milk and honey". During the ensuing millenia, much of the Holy Land deteriorated into desert and wasteland.

Over 240 million trees have been planted in Israel during the last century, making Israel the only country in the world to end the 20th century with more trees than at the beginning of the century. We appreciate your dedication and partnership in supporting this important endeavor.
