All the Trees of the Forest

This chapter notes that it is interesting that a geologist spearheaded the remarkable afforestation ventures in the semi-arid Negev regions of Israel. Yitzschak “Itzik” Moshe didn't engineer changes in the genetics of trees but changes in the formation of the landscape and flow of water in the desert which produced vigorous woodlands in these dry regions. He did more to redefine the way that trees are planted in Israel than any other individual has done since the 1980s. It is ironic that the new forests he created in Israel's drylands are the subject of such intense controversy. The chapter analyses his role in this controversy.
