Mastıc Tree Afestoration Site to be Put in Practice in İzmir Foça
TÜRKÇİMENTO is about to implement its “Mastic Tree Afestoration Site” project on its 65th anniversary. Within the scope of the project, saplings of a total of 250 mastic trees and 500 blue cypress and black cypress were planted on an area of 10 thousand square meters in Gerenköy in the district of Foça of İzmir.
In the 65th anniversary of its establishment, TÜRKÇİMENTO implemented the “Mastic Tree Afestoration Site” project on an area of 10 thousand square meters in Gerenköy in the district of Foça of İzmir in collaboration with the Aegean Forest Foundation – İzmir Foça Municipality.
Within the scope of the project implemented with the support of TÜRKÇİMENTO, saplings of a total of 250 mastic trees and 500 blue cypress and black cypress were planted on the “Mastic Tree Afestoration Site.”
Within the scope of the project, which aims to revitalize the economic, cultural, and social value of the disappearing mastic tree, field preparations were carried out and saplings were planted. In addition, a drip irrigation system was established in the area, where fire prevention measures were taken, and its implementation was started. In the projects implemented by Aegean Forest Foundation, which was collaborated within the framework of the project, it supports women from the local communities in their economic, social, and cultural development through education, skill acquisition, and qualification.
Fatih Yücelik, Chairman of the Board of Directors of TÜRKÇİMENTO, evaluated the Mastic Tree Project as follows:
“One of the issues that excited us the most in this project, in which we aimed to promote the cultivation of Mastic Tree for the conservation of the Mastic Tree species by re-breeding, was the economic and social support it provided to women. The locals took place in the activities carried out during the realization of this project and in the planting of saplings, with the priority given to the employment of women in the region. Great labor of the people of the region is in question in the project, which also includes the education process. On this occasion, we extend our thanks once again to everyone who contributed, particularly the Foundation.”
