Please go through the following FAQs. You might find an answer to your query here itself.

01. Why do you plant trees so close to each other?
Trees are planted close to each other in order to simulate natural conditions of growth and competition. For the same reason we plant trees randomly. This method has been developed by Dr. Akira Miyawaki after extensive and exhaustive research and has proved to work in over 3,000 locations, including Gobi Desert and Central Africa.
02. What is the minimum area needed for afforestation?
The minimum area needed for afforestation is 100 SqMt.
03. Why do you restrict minimum plantation area to 100 sqmt. and minimum number of trees to 300?
This is done to simulate natural biodiversity in flora and fauna.
04. If the trees are planted close to the compound wall, or building walls, will they cause any damage?
There is very little chance of any damage due to tree-growth. We do however, take all the necessary precautions to prevent any such damage.
05. I want to include some exotic trees as well- can this be done?
As a rule, we plant only native trees. Exotic trees may not be able to survive, or will dominate, or cause unforeseen damage to native flora and fauna.
06. I live in a place where soil conditions are very poor, and rainfall is scarce and irregular- will this method still work?
Yes, this method will still work as we nourish the soil with organic soil amenders.
07. I already have some trees planted on my premises- can you still apply your methodology?
Yes we can still apply our methodology, provided there is enough spacing between existing trees.
08. Can we use this method for mono-culture plantations?
This method is based on the concept of bio-diversity and not mono-culture plantation.
09. Do you accept donations?
No, we are a Private Limited Company in the business of afforestation. We earn by providing afforestation services.
10. We are a corporate- how can we tie up with Afforestt?
You can tie-up with Afforestt to get a forest made in your campus or factory premises.
11. I would like to know more about the open source idea?
Please visit the Do-It-Yourself page Click Here
12. I would like to get involved and learn the method?
The best way to get involved is to either grow a forest or learn how to grow one. You can do this with either our online training or by yourselves
13. Do you train people to grow forests?
Yes! we do, please sign up for our online training
14. Can forests be commercially viable?
Forests are first meant to give environmental benefits like CO2 absorption, oxygen releasing, reducing noise and dust pollution, conserving soil, recharging the ground water, and serving as a habitat for fauna essential to the ecosystem. You can also consume what the forest produces, like fruits, oil-seeds, nuts, fodder and medicine. However, forest produce is a mix of things, thus the quantity is less but quality great. It should not be confused with industrial scale monoculture production of food grain or fruits.
15. Can I grow a forest along the perimeter of my land?
Yes! All you require is 100 sq meters in area, 4-5 meters in width, sufficient water, protection and about 2-3 years of maintenance. Maintenance only requires watering and de-weeding.
16. The land I have is very dry or rocky or poor in nutrition. Can you help?
Yes! We excel in growing forests in tough conditions and have already proved it in several locations! All we need is natural soil of the region as we work only with the Potential Natural Vegetation (PNV).
17. Can we invest in your company?
Afforestt is a commercial company and at present we are not interested in investments.
18. Do you conduct workshops?
Yes, we do! Details can be found here
19. Do you help grow an entire forest as end-to-end contractors?
Yes, we can! Please visit our forestscaping section to get more details
20. Do you give consultation?
Yes, we do! Please visit our consulting section for more details
21. Do you help transplant the existing trees?
