Giora loves trees. He loves looking at, identifying, and getting to know them wherever he goes. What will he do when he spots a dilapidated, wilted apple tree that seems to be in trouble? This is a book about becoming involved, taking initiative, loving nature, and preserving it.
"To work it and to preserve it" (Genesis, 2:15)
Jewish tradition attributes great importance to land and nature, agricultural work and nature preservation. The first person assigned this important task was Adam. Back in the Garden of Eden, he was told to work the land and preserve it, thereby given the responsibility to safekeep the world around him, and nurture it.
In The Man who Loved Trees, Giora manages to save trees, and inspires his neighbors. Gradually and due to their cooperation, their entire neighborhood blooms in green.
