This chapter looks at what happened to the forests after the end of the British Mandate period. Initially, the two forestry services, the government and the Jewish National Fund (JNF), set out planting trees at a ferocious rate. Notwithstanding the presence of British infrastructure and expertise which remained with the government, the JNF foresters quickly took the lead and never lost it. Since 1961 the JNF has enjoyed sole authority to conduct afforestation activities in Israel. This makes Israelȧs forestry experience idiosyncratic, not only substantively but institutionally.
