In 2020, the Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality launched its Climate Adaptation Action Plan. One of the flagship programs developed within this framework is the "Urban Forest Plan" addressing issues of protection, scaling up, and management of the trees across the city.
The "Urban Forest Plan" aims to promote a green and solid urban framework, based on high-quality trees that provide shade, in areas across the city, benefitting the city's residents, visitors and the overall ecosystem. The plan addresses different aspects related to trees in the city: construction plans, mapping and maintenance, planting new trees, and community participation. This can strengthen planning mechanisms and expand the scope of participation to additional audiences, both internal and external. The plan was launched with, among other things, a quantitative target of adding 100,000 trees by 2030.
