«Your Forest» Foundation, through its projects implementation, detailed answers to the farmers questions, facing towards the agro-ecology and forestry. By these projects, farmers will get the comprehensive information about the potentially prospective places for various plant types planting for the next decades. One of the main Foundation activities is agro-forestry, which solving the problems associated with windbreaks, drought, and the shelterbelts creation. Initially is planned to conduct the research works on the whole territory of Georgia, using of modern technologies. During these work the following processes will be defined as climate change, soil moisture content, the water amount as well as favorable places for planting trees or other crops. This is the first such kind of project, conducted in Georgia, involving the construction of 30 stations within 50 kilometers radius from each other in different climatic zones, which will explore different climate data and other parameters, namely: soil conditions, moisture content and water balance.
The stations will operate by invited foreign scientists and experts, who will conduct the various researches defining forest and agricultural lands problems, and will develop the ways to solve these issues. At the greenhouses the imported forest trees seedlings, garden and other plants nurseries will be set up. Those plants that accustomed in different climatic and soil conditions, will be planted at the nearby forests, thus will restored the windbreaks. The farmers will also be able to use these seedlings.
Your Forest Foundation project is a very important, both from the standpoint of environmental protection and agriculture, as well as in education and economy areas. The project will improve the skills level of the local working population. As for researches, the information will be important to investors and others, concerned in agricultural sector. The investor, based on the precise research data, will have the information about its investment prospects. Data from stations: soil moisture, temperature, water content, etc., farmers will receive on a weekly basis, which undoubtedly will help in their farms planning and management.
