Following the worst forest fires in Israel’s history which burned areas of the Carmel Mountain Range near the city of Haifa in December of 2010, Music for Relief contributed to partner Jewish National Fund for reforestation. Since the fires, rangers have focused on removing charred vegetation, creating firebreaks, monitoring unaffected trees in burnt areas, and repairing forest access roads. With our support, Jewish National Fund began re-planting in select areas where regeneration failed to occur. Music for Relief’s contribution funds the planting of 1,100 trees as a part of Operation Carmel Renewal: From Black to Green.
