From the Research Lab: Green Trees in a White City - Survey of Typical Trees and Green Textures / an Online Lecture by Architect Shachar Zur

One can attribute a significant part of the quality of Tel Aviv-Jaffa’s open space to some 260,000 trees planted throughout the city. Complementing the built environment, they grant the city its multilayered character and identity. The bulk of the mature trees in Tel Aviv were planted during the mid-20th century (1920–1970), while the city was experiencing a rapid development period. In recent years, construction plans, urban regeneration, crowding, and condensing initiatives pose a real threat to Tel Aviv’s urban forest. Green Trees in a White City: Survey of Typical Trees and Green Textures in Districts 3 and 5, promoted by the Department of Conservation, is the first attempt to identify, characterize, and define the extent and quality of the high landscape and outline a framework for protecting Tel Aviv’s historic trees as part of the municipal landscape and shade conservation policy. All these topics will be discussed in the lecture.

Shachar Zur is a landscape architect, urban forest researcher and planner, and lecturer in the Faculty of Architecture and Town Planning at the Technion.
