Generally the first two weeks of Shvat are popular tree planting days in Israel, fruit trees in particular. That's so their "age" will be considered from the previous year, not after the New Year of Trees, TU B'Shvat.
I have to decide when to make our Women's Rosh Chodesh Prayers at Tel Shiloh. Should it be on Friday or Sunday? Friday would be easiest for me, while Sunday, I'd need to have someone stay with my father.
Tel Shiloh is a major tourist attraction. On Rosh Chodesh Tevet, the Elder of Ziyon was here.
