Foresters from Republika Srpska visit Israel

While Bosnia & Herzegovina is very different from Israel, it appears that KKL-JNF’s professional expertise can benefit foresters who work in entirely different climate and geographical conditions.  Three forest professionals from Republika Srpska in Bosnia & Herzegovina toured Israel to learn about KKL-JNF’s forest, water and community projects as well as its management of open areas.

“In our country, we have open areas that we want to turn into forests and we seek to learn from KKL-JNF’s experience,” said Stevan Stancic of the Interfob Association for Forestry & Wood Technology.

“We can greatly benefit from KKL-JNF’s expertise in a variety of areas, including afforestation in regions with harsh conditions, production of seeds and seedlings, combatting forest fires, and using forests for purposes other than wood production and community relations,” added Stancic.

On the first day of their visit, the guests met with representatives of KKL-JNF in Jerusalem and heard about KKL-JNF’s projects throughout Israel.  KKL-JNF Chief Forester and Head of the Forest Department David Brand presented KKL-JNF’s many afforestation projects.  Forester Noam Ben Moshe spoke to the group about invasive species.
