The rehabilitation of Ben Shemen Forest
The largest Forest in Israel’s central district, the historical Ben Shemen Forest served as a vital green lung for the heavily populated area.
In May 2019, the worst wildfire to have ever hit the area blazed through Ben Shemen Forest, burning 40 out of 50 homes on the forests perimeter.
Roughly 220 hectares of forest was burnt, which is equal to about 15% of the forest area. The project is underway to rehabilitate the forest which will extend over the coming years.
