The Plant a Tree in Palestine, a project of Stop the JNF and grassroots Palestinian partners including the Land Defense Coalition and Stop the Wall, is a powerful tool of Palestinian resistance and serves three key functions:
- Building Solidarity: Planting trees within affected communities conveys a strong sense of international solidarity, of people not being alone and forgotten, building Palestinian sumud.
- Reclaiming the Land: Farmers being supported to plant trees counters the Israeli drive to detach people from their land.
- Benefiting the Environment: The trees planted are natural to the region, unlike many JNF trees, alien to the land. The trees planted as part of the project benefit the environment and have deep cultural and historic significance.
