Thursday Challenge - GREEN

This photo was taken this summer in the Biriya forest in the Galilee.

The Jewish National Fund has been responsible for reforesting projects in Israel (and before that when Palestine was controlled by the Turks and then by British Mandate) making us the only country to finish off the 20th century with more trees growing than at the beginning of the century!
