The existence and performance of Abuzeid Abad villages at the heart of the central Iranian sand-Dune area is an illustration of Geographical situation and environmental elements.
Erg and sand-dunes in Abu zeid Abad region, though hampering development activities, can be transformed into economic prosperity factors.
In this paper, the "Haloxylon planting project" in and around the villages and specialists" opposing views on its implementation has been analysed. Despite its positive effect on decreasing the migration of rural inhabitants to the cities, Haloxylon planting seems to need further expansion to meet the villagers growing request to agricultural land.
The study of Haloxylon pastures, their destruction by people and methods of prevention along with development of new planting zones have been brought into consideration.
