Christmas Trees from KKL-JNF Forests - December 2016

Tuesday, December 06, 2016 10:16 AM

In keeping with its annual tradition, KKL-JNF will once again be distributing Christmas trees to local churches, monasteries, convents, embassies, foreign journalists and the general public as the holiday approaches.

Distribution will take place in central and northern Israel, in accordance with lists provided by the Ministry of the Interior, the Municipality of Jerusalem and other bodies. Private individuals, too, can buy a tree for the token sum of 80 NIS.

Each KKL-JNF forest is divided into 'stands' of trees, identified according to the date of planting, tree type and growth rate.

The trees used for Christmas trees are Arizona cypresses. 

As Christmas approaches, the Arizona cypress plots will undergo their first thinning, making many beautiful, high quality young cypress trees available to the public for a token sum, for use as Christmas trees. 

Christmas tree distribution prevents illegal felling of the trees and allows people to enjoy the festive presence of a Christmas tree.

Distribution in Central Israel
In the central region, KKL-JNF foresters will distribute trees in the cypress grove adjacent to the KKL-JNF offices in Givat Yishayahu.
Distribution will take place on Sunday, December 18th,  and Monday, December 19th, from 9:00 - 13:00.
