Nature Society surveys Jerusalem's ancient roots
Some 5,000 ancient trees have been located in Jerusalem in the first survey of its kind, carried out by SPNI. Between 2011 and 2013 SPNI, assisted by volunteers, conducted a comprehensive survey of old trees in Jerusalem. "When we examined the findings and stories in depth, we discovered a whole world, a whole layer of cultural and historic landscape that gives the city identity and a natural dimension," says Sigalit Rahman, SPNI's Jerusalem Community director.
