What is Happening to the Oaks in the Nature Park?
In recent years, a clear trend of desiccation of Palestine oak trees has been observed at Ramat Hanadiv. Is it possible to recover the dry trees? How can it be that one tree is green and flourishing while its neighbor is in an advanced state of desiccation?
These and other questions have occupied the researchers at Ramat Hanadiv for quite some time. Several years ago, they began conducting long-term monitoring with the aim of answering these questions and determining whether human intervention on this issue is appropriate.
Recently we uploaded a unique web interface that displays in detail the story of the oaks at Ramat Hanadiv, in plain language accompanied by photographs from the field. The interface provides a unique opportunity to make close acquaintance with the stages of the research process.
