20111221 Santa Claus distributes Christmas trees at Jaffa Gate – Jerusalem
“Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael will be Distributing Christmas Trees!
Christmas is around the corner and KKL-JNF is distributing, once again, Christmas Trees to local churches, monasteries, convents, embassies, foreign journalists and the general public. The Distribution will take place in central and northern Israel, according to lists provided by the Ministry of the Interior, the Municipality of Jerusalem and other bodies. Private individuals can buy a tree for a small amount of 70 NIS.
Taking into consideration the Israeli weather, KKL-JNF foresters grow Arizona Cedars, which are best suited to serve as attractive Christmas trees. KKL-JNF foresters grow plots of Arizona cedars in a variety of forests in northern Israel. As Christmas approaches, the foresters thin out the crowded woodland and sell the trees to the general public. On the one hand, this prevents illegal felling of the trees and on the other, allows people to enjoy the presence of a festive Christmas tree.”
