The Pica, the Palestine Jewish Colonization Association, may resume its planting activity in the area of Caesarea, J. F. Campbell, District Commissioner, told a delegation of the Association. The area was ravaged last week by Arab villagers who uprooted 4,000 eucalyptus trees planted by the Pica.
The government will declare the region a protected area under the provisions of the afforestation ordinance, the Commissioner stated.
