About this book

In this insightful and provocative book, All the Trees of the Forest, Alon Tal provides a detailed account of Israeli forests, tracing their history from the Bible to the present, and outlines the effort to transform drylands and degraded soils into prosperous parks, rangelands and ecosystems.

Tal's description of the Israel's trials and errors, and his exploration of both the environmental history and the current policy dilemmas involved in their efforts, will provide valuable lessons for other parts of the world seeing to re-establish timberlands for years to come.

Media reviews

"Alon Tal is a wonderfully engaging writer, and he has crafted a narrative that will have considerable crossover appeal."
– Char Miller, Pomona College

"The book is exceptional in scope and depth – I know of nothing like it."
– Gretchen Daily, Stanford University

"Written by a rare combination of outstanding environmental activist and fine politician, this wonderful book describes the history and future of forests in one of the most human-disturbed areas of Earth. Of great interest to anyone who cares about the environment."
– Paul R. Ehrlich, co-author of The Dominant Animal

"Israel's forests are small. But to anyone who reads the Bible their ancient history is of great interest. And to anyone who wants to reforest more of our deteriorating planet, the history of the last 75 years is instructive both for its blunders and its successes. This is a remarkable history of remarkable places!"
– Bill McKibben, author Oil and Honey: The Education of an Unlikely Activist
