The devastating Carmel Fire killed more than 40 people and ravaged thousands of acres of forest in a nation whose forested lands were already limited. But since that disaster, Israel has seen thousands of volunteers flowing in from local areas and around the world, all eager to play a part in the recovery and restoration of its forests. These volunteers have pulled weeds, pruned trees, hauled charred stumps and branches away, mulched, fertilized, and already planted some trees. They've been hard at work, and the result is that Israel's forests may still have a green future.
