Forest Fence / Fence for Desertification

Forest Fence
Forest Fence

Desertification is the cause of land degradation. The absence of obstacles in the vast desert prevents seeds from settling down, and the seeds fly away. The fence helps to settle seeds and turn the surrounding land into a meadow. Traditional wooden barriers involve great manpower even though the desert is hot and dry. We considered the form of reducing manpower consumption and transporting them efficiently. It can be folded and unfolded for easy use when moving, and it can be stepped on with its feet so that it can be easily embedded in the ground. The material is naturally decomposed, which supplies nutrients to the ground.
