Terraformation has supported My Forest Armenia in planting 180,000 native trees within the Lori region in the Republic of Armenia. With more than 3,500 plant species, Armenia is considered a biodiversity hotspot — but decades of deforestation have reduced its tree cover to just 11%. Today, the country hovers at the edge of desertification.
My Forest Armenia connects local communities to scientists and expert foresters in order to accelerate reforestation, with the long-term goal of preserving biodiversity, stopping soil erosion, protecting fresh water, and sequestering carbon. The team is currently restoring 66.5 hectares, with plans to plant up to 5,000 hectares. To date, MFA has employed 72 local people in planting, 40% of whom are women.
