Georgian Society of Nature Explorers “Orchis” (GSNE) in the framework of the “Clean up Georgia” – Increasing Public Awareness and Involvement in Solid Waste Management Improvement (Phase II)” project with the financial support of Swedish Government intends to undertake efforts for protection and determination of reforestation methods of forest habitats in Georgia. Georgia as a part of the Caucasus ecoregion maximally contains territories of forest habitats with a very high level of plant endemic species and it is among the planet’s 34 most diverse and endangered hotspots. The refuge of Colchic forest habitat type contains relict species of the Tertiary Period and it needs protection and forest restoration. This book describes biodiversity of forest habitats and the conservation opportunities of their degradation problems, how to protect forest from anthropogenic impacts, global climate change and infectious diseases. It is important to determine that plantation management supports natural tree species and as well invasive and exotic species. Forest restoration can support biodiversity conservation objectives and determines that can be encouraged environmental factors and of nature cleanup, which can contribute to the human society to live in a clean environment.
