Driving In the Stakes at Israel365’s 10,000-Tree Forest


The adventure begins!

We’re proud to announce that phase one of Israel365’s 10,000-tree forest is complete!

Baruch Kogan, project head for the forest, sent us this video of him and his son on-site. They had just driven the stakes into the ground for the fencing required to protect the forest.

It was an extremely windy day in the Biblical heartland, so please forgive the noise!

As you’ll see in the video, the forest site is currently a large empty piece of land that hasn’t been cultivated since at least the Second Temple Period – almost 2,000 years ago!

In just three short years from now, the rocks and shrubs will be covered with a lush and thriving forest.

If you want to see Biblical prophecy in action, this is it!


In the coming weeks, Baruch, Yedidya (the forest manager), and their volunteers will be:

  • Erecting the fence to keep out animals, terrorists, and hikers.
  • Setting up the drip irrigation system.
  • Filling the fenced field with 2,000 cubic meters of mulch and fertilizer.
  • Planting the first 2,500 saplings.
  • Planting hundreds of bushes to support the trees’ growth.

We’ll keep you updated as the forest progresses!

If you’ve donated trees, thank you SO much, and please feel free to donate more!

If you haven’t donated trees yet, then DONATE NOW

Fulfill prophecy and bless the Biblical heartland of Israel with trees TODAY!

אֶתֵּן בַּמִּדְבָּר אֶרֶז שִׁטָּה וַהֲדַס וְעֵץ שָׁמֶן אָשִׂים בָּעֲרָבָה בְּרוֹשׁ תִּדְהָר וּתְאַשּׁוּר יַחְדָּו׃

“I will plant cedars in the wilderness, acacias and myrtles and oleasters; I will set cypresses in the desert, box trees, and elms as well…” (Isaiah 41:19)
