KKL-JNF forest research studies completed in 2012 were presented at a special conference attended by foresters and scientists at the KKL-JNF offices in Eshtaol. The scientists and foresters exchanged knowledge and ideas with the goal of finding new ways to apply the research. David Brand, KKL-JNF Chief Forester and Director of the KKL-JNF Forestry Department, opened the conference and said that the goal is to focus on research studies that are applicable, to fill the gaps in knowledge and investigate various problems. “These studies give us tools for a better interface in the lands we administrate.” KKL

These research studies, which were funded by contributions from friends of KKL-JNF worldwide, do not only enrich the theoretical knowledge on a variety of topics related to forestry, but in many cases also provide useful tools for KKL-JNF foresters to achieve better forest management. For the scientists there is special significance in meeting the people that work in the forest day to day. It is a great opportunity for them to learn from the practical experience they have accumulated and to hear about the different onsite phenomena.
