Mark Beltaire, popular
Detroit Free Press colum-
nist, who has been honored
by ,the Jewish National
Fund Council of Detroit in
appreciation for his interest
in tree planting and affores-
tation in Israel, devoted his
March 21 column to the
JNF. He expressed his
interest in Israel and the
JNF program, as follows:
"I grew up in our town on
a street made memorable by
trees, a cathedral of elms.
For most of my life I've been
where trees are, and have
mourned when that miser-
able beetle sneaked in from
the Netherlands - and de-
stroyed them.
"That is much of the rea-
son why I was especially
moved when the Jewish Na-
tional Fund of Greater De-
troit recently honored me
with the planting of a grove
of 1,000 trees in my name in
Israel.
"Philip Slomovitz,
editor and publisher of
the Jewish News, and his
son Carmi, now president
of the fund, made the pre-
sentation. And I'm fully
aware that Percy Kaplan
of the fund and old friend
Paul Masserman had a
hand in it.
"I've been intrigued with
the idea of Trees for Israel
ever since I first heard

MARK BELTAIRE

about the project in 1955 .. .
I've followed its progress
ever since, have watched it
grow to a spreading 135 mil-
lion trees in 1978 plus a
total of 160,000 acres re-
claimed from the stoniest,
most arid kind of desert
where even the vestiges of
roots were long ago up-
rooted by goats.

"I hope that some time I
can visit my grove in Israel.
Failing that, it would be
pleasant to think my chil-
dren or their children could
make such a journey. If the
world hasn't blown itself
apart, a debacle that would
not be the fault of the trees."

"This planting of trees in
land not previously given to
trees is known as afforesta-
tion, as distinguished from
reforestation, defined as 'to
renew forest cover by
natural seedings or artifi-
cial planting.' Afforestation
is manifestly more difficult
and even more rewarding in
that it virtually creates
something out of nothing.
"I applaud the concept,
wish it could be extended to
many other parts of the
world where any kind of
greenery would lift the
economy and the human
spirit.
"There is nothing polit-
ical about a tree. It offers
shade and beauty, can be
converted into timber
and fuel as it grows, is re-
placeable when once es-
tablished, and creates
badly needed new soil
without giving a fig for
the creeds or nationality
f; the people it serves.
