011 The Tree Fighters

Meeting place: 19 HaTzolelet Dakar St., New Romema

In recent years, Haifa has experienced a number of wildfires that destroyed hundreds of acres of brush and forest. Led by the agronomist Hanoch Burger, the tour will concentrate on the area where the huge fire occurred in November 2016, which obliterated large stretches of land covered with trees and vegetation. He will explain what caused the fire to grow out of control and what lessons have been learned from the disaster. During the 90-minute tour, Burger will describe the unique work methods that were devised and implemented to rehabilitate the land damaged by the fire and restore the brush and forest to their original state within a short time. He will also talk about the measures currently in place, which are designed to give firefighters quick access in the event of another fire.
