The eucalyptus in the Khan’s yard
Some eucalyptus trees are planted in the Khan’s yard, but only two of them are unique - these are the eucalyptus of Isaac Sheinfein from the founders of the colony. These two eucalyptus plants were planted in 1906, and are a remnant of the colony’s nucleus, which also included the Khan, which is the first public building and the water well.
Isaac Sheinfein, the young laborer had a vision of turning the deserted place into a green area and so in 1905 he built sprouts near the stable and planted eucalyptus seeds. The eucalyptus trees, he argued, would not only provide shade but also color the wilderness in green and provide raw material.
Over the years, the two seedlings grew, more woods planted and his vision seemed to come true. When World War I broke out, the tree branches built sukkahs for the deportees of Tel Aviv and Jaffa who came to the small colony in mass, and many trees were cut forneeds of the Turkish army, the burning of railway locomotives and heating.
From Yitzhak Sheinfein’s dream, the two large eucalyptus trees in the Khan’s yard remain that are marked in the city’s emblem. When Kfar Saba turned 90, two young trees were planted alongside the old trees. The trees were planted by the great-grandson of Isaac Scheinfein and by Mayor Isaac Wald. When Khan and Bar were 100 years old, Eucalyptus Fifth was planted by Mayor Yehuda Ben Hamu.
