We want to give the well deserved life back to mastic trees in Cesme and leave some space for next generation to breathe in.
We don't just want to complain about environmental problems. We also want to find sustainable solutions .
There are many challenges in planting mastic trees such as finding suitable fields, covering the cost of mastic tree saplings, protective fencing, periodically watering and looking after of the trees. Local farmers are not interested in planting mastic trees since harvesting first mastic gum from a young tree takes about 10 years.
