Herzl Forest at Hulda

Herzl Forest at Hulda

The Herzl Forest at Hulda is one of the first forests which have been planted by Keren Kayemeth Le`Israel - Jewish National Fund (KKL-JNF). Together with Ben Shemen Forest, it marks the begining of KKL-JNF`s afforestation project in Israel.

Today, the Herzl Forest forms a part of the Hulda woodlands which extend over more than 800 dunams (200 acres or 80 ha.), from Tel Shahar in the east to Kiryat Ekron in the west. The forest features a variety of ornamental and fruit trees: pines, china berry, cypress and pepper trees, casuarinas, sycamores, plums, tamarisks, carobs, dates, olive trees and even bottle trees.

Picnic facilities have been installed in the Herzl Forest for the convenience of visitors to the area. Visitors to the Herzl Forests at Hulda may wish to stop by the Grave of Ephrayim Chiswick and the Avoda and Hagannah Memorial which was sculpted by Batya Lishinski. Other places of interest in the forest include the water reservoir which was part of the "Burma Road" water pipe leading to Jerusalem and the Herzl House which is currently being restored.
