Planting in the Martyrs’ Forest began in 1951, where several memorial sites exist to commemorate the Jewish communities that perished in the Holocaust. There are picnic areas and accessible observation points, bike trails and a scenic road for all types of vehicles. The Israel National Trail also passes through the forest attracting many day-hikers and backpackers year-round. The forest is characterized by native trees of Israel (pine, cypress, oak, olive and , terebinth) and colorful wildflower displays that attract large crowds especially during the flowering season. Your donation will contribute towards the renewal of the Martyrs’ Forest: to develop new leisure and recreation areas, plan forest management treatments, the planting of olive trees and development of the forest’s western entrance by creating an inviting and welcoming entrance plaza that will greet the dozens of weekly visitors to the forest. The new entrance will enable an easy and safe access to the Martyrs’ Forest from the direction of Bet Shemesh and Eshtaol, while the addition of new parking spaces will facilitate larger visitor volume to the forest and its various attractions.
Givat HaMoreh Forest – Forest Restoration and Scenic Road Upgrade
In June 2016, a forest fire broke out in the Givat HaMoreh Forest, located in the Lower Galilee, consuming around 250 acres (100 hectares) of trees and forest vegetation. JNF began the careful work of rehabilitation as part of its efforts to preserve and protect the environment, which serve as green lungs for communities and tourism, recreation and sports venues, connecting people to nature. In addition, JNF is upgrading the forest’s scenic road, which will provide easy access to all types of vehicles, opening the forest to visitors and hikers who want to enjoy its landscapes, wildflowers and natural beauty.
