Abstract:
Afforestation activities in Israel take place over an extreme geobotanical and climatic gradient of between 250-900mm of rainfall a year. A relatively moist, Mediterranean climate, natural woodlands of evergreen, sclerophyllous oaks and planted forests of Mediterranean pines and cypresses characterize the vast majority of forestlands in northern Israel. In contrast, an eastern semi-arid pocket associated with the Syrian-African Rift Valley presents challenging environmental conditions for afforestation efforts as practiced by the British Mandatory Forest Department, the Israeli Governmental Forest Department, the Keren Kayemeth Leisrael (KKL) and private entrepreneurs over the past 80 years. The accumulated experiences of planting new forests in this semi-arid zone, combined with results from introduction plots and afforestation areas throughout Israel, led to the development of a unique set of silvicultural tools and tree species employed to guarantee successful afforestation plans. All of these new afforestations function as multipurpose forestry systems offering landscape, watershed, soil conservation, pasture, recreational and NWFP goods and services and can provide a relevant model of sustainable forest management for semi-arid and arid zones worldwide. © 2011 Nova Science Publishers, Inc.
