Dr. Gary and Linda Assarian Greenhouse, Vanadzor

In cooperation with the Agrarian state university, we built a greenhouse in front of their Vanadzor branch main building. This greenhouse has a dual function: the major part is dedicated to growing tree seedlings in containers, and another part serves for educational and research purposes for students and professors of the university.

Tree seedlings grown here are more viable. The main idea is that during the entire growth and planting process of the tree seedlings, the root system is not disturbed, and the seedlings are not damaged during the transportation process. This offers the opportunity of having healthy and viable seedlings in a short period of time and a higher survival rate during reforestation activities. The growth of tree seedlings in containers for afforestation and reforestation programs is widely used in many countries.
