JNF to Give Bg Airport Face Lift

Download PDF for this date

The Jewish National Fund has begun planting trees along the roads approaching Ben Gurion Airport, with the aim of giving Israel’s international gateway to the world a bit of a face lift. Species include full grown oaks which are being transplanted from old established nurseries around the country. Travelers and native Israelis often remark how stark and unattractive is the first glimpse of Israel, which is flat and in the main treeless.
