Community Tree Planting and Rural Reforestation

At urban community sites, in villages, and in rural locations, ATP has made enormous strides in combating poverty and deforestation by planting and restoring more than 3,000,000 trees since 1994, and creating hundreds of jobs for Armenians who grow and plant trees. In 2009, we are expecting to plant over one million trees for the first time ever.

ATP’s tree planting strategy has several components. We produce trees on an increasingly larger scale each year at our state-of-the-art nurseries in Karin and Khachpar, at our Mirak Family Reforestation Nursery in Margahovit, and in over 500 backyards where rural farmers grow seedlings for reforestation in the Getik River Valley of northern Armenia.

We are planting these trees in partnership with residents of urban and rural communities with several goals, including: a) beautification of public sites; b) enhanced food security through the creation of fruit orchards planted in villages and rural backyards; and c) land reclamation and erosion control on barren sites targeted for mountainous reforestation.
