Israel is a young country, it is both a developing and postindustrial country. The state is a multicultural mishmash. Israel's woodlands tell us an interesting tale. The woodlands carry the scars of military invasions and past conquests. Like the country itself, the woodlands are a mishmash. This chapter explains why we should be interested in Israel's forestry. The story is relevant for land managers, environmental advocates, and policy makers who seek a sustainable strategy for reforestation and afforestation efforts. It is also of interest for ordinary people who care about the future of the planet. As the world is increasingly aware of its own ecological follies and global vulnerability, Israel's forests today can offer valuable lessons.
