Miyawaki Forest

Miyawaki Forest

Miyawaki is a technique pioneered by Japanese botanist Akira Miyawaki that helps build dense, native forests in a short time. It has revolutionized the concept of urban afforestation by turning backyards into mini-forests. This method includes planting trees (only native species) as close as possible in the same area which not only saves space, but the planted saplings also support each other in growth and block sunlight reaching the ground, thereby preventing the growth of weed. The saplings become maintenance-free (self-sustainable) after the first three years. This approach is supposed to ensure that plant growth is 10 times faster and the resulting plantation is 30 times denser than usual. Miyawaki method helps to create a forest in just 2 to 3 years, while through conventional methods it takes anywhere between 20 to 30 years. Miyawaki Forest is being developed at Ekta Nagar adjacent to SSNNL Circuit House hill, near to Ekta Mall in an area of 2 acres.
