The Jerusalem Tree Survey


The Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel, Jerusalem Branch, in conjunction with the Ministry of Agriculture, recently published a Survey of Mature and Unique Trees in the City of Jerusalem. The survey includes detailed information and photos about the trees in the city's neighborhoods. The survey documented 4,810 mature and unique trees in the city, including approximately 600 trees that are eighty years and older.

Over sixty species of trees were included in the survey,  found in more than seventy neighborhoods throughout the city. The most popular species documented in the survey include Jerusalem Pine (Pinus halepensis), Mediterranean Cypress (Cupressus sempervirens), Olive Tree (Olea europaea), and Red River Gum (Eucalyptus camadulensis).

The survey is a first step in documenting and preserving an essential and integral part of the city's important natural resources.
