During a recently televised conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, Ramon said, “I call upon every Jew in the world to plant a tree in the land of Israel during the coming year. I would like to see at least 13 or 14 million new trees planted in Israel exactly one year from now, on the anniversary of the launching”. Officials with The Jewish National Fund (JNF) accepted the challenge immediately by planting trees in honor of Ramon, whose first name means “tree”.
