Sorry to hear that your land/country is so bare...good luck with the reforestation efforts...
For us here, there is a 100 to 1 cost advantage in using seeds to reforest, as opposed to planting trees; in addition, the resulting forest is a higher quality forest.
Its not easy, and we need to be patient...the idea is to cover the earth with trees, shrubs or grasses year round...this will lower the ground temperatures and bring in more rains etc etc.
There is going to be a trial and failure period, where you try different seeds...I have listed here what has worked for me...some of these seeds may also work for your area (or maybe not)....what grows at the side of the roads, may help you.
I will be glad to send you a small bag of seeds for you to try, provided its allowed by your laws...mostly I collect seeds from the fruits we eat, I purchase seeds from locals, or from a seed supplier in Italy.
