One of the most important goals in landscape planning is to achieve the proposed socio-economic level through using environmentally compatible policies when it peaking the life quality. Regarding to the scope of biological production, determining the growth requirements of the plants used at the agro-ecological zones and improving them by planning constitute the basis of this study. Amasra which has established as a peninsula covering approximately 120 km2 was preferred as the study area. The agro-ecological zones of the chestnut, walnut and hazelnut together with the orchard of apples, cherries and sour cherries that are cultivated by local community were identified within the study area. Since these products are favored and economically high valuable plants cultivated within the study area, they were primarily evaluated. In order to define the agro-ecological zones, digital maps were utilized. ArcGIS 10 was preferred as GIS software for the generation of the maps. The Microsoft Access software was used for generation of the database in the study area. According to the results of this study, the areas where plants have been growing without needing any maintenance were determined as suitable areas whereas the areas where plants can grow if appropriate conditions are supplied with extra care were identified as the non-suitable areas.
