Trees in Israel

Sir: It was interesting to read Naomi Cohen's letter (11 July) about Israel's forestation policies. However, there was no reference to the uprooting of over 30,000 trees in the Occupied Territories since the Oslo accords. If the Jewish National Fund enjoys "the accolade of one of the world's oldest environmentalists", perhaps it will oppose the destruction of the Palestinian environment wrought by settlement and road-building?
