Jordan government decided not to allow the uprooting of trees for the construction of a military academy in Bergesh Forest

Following calls from environmental organizations and members of Parliament for a halt to the construction of a military academy in Jordan's Bergesh Forest, the government has decided as of mid-September 2011 to maintain the region as a recreation area, thus preserving the forest and its century-old trees.
