Methodology

The Miyawaki Technique is a unique methodology proven to work worldwide, irrespective of soil and climatic conditions. More than 3,000 forests have been successfully created worldwide using this methodology.

Upto 30 times more dense compared to conventional plantations.

30 times better noise and dust reduction.

Upto 30 times better Carbon-dioxide absorption as compared to a monoculture plantation.

A completely maintenance-free, wild and native forest after the first three years.

A completely chemical and chemical fertiliser free forest that sustains itself and supports local bio-diversity.

Open Source

We are happy that many individuals and groups have used our open-source manuals to create forests using the Miyawaki method. However, we have also noticed non-forest, orchard, ornamental, avenue, and non-native species being planted.

In August 2019 our trainers from Japan were in India. Together we visited some of our old forests, did a PNV (Potential Natural Vegetation) survey and also planted a forest. During the training, we realised that our Open Source manuals need to focus more on PNV survey as the selection of species is the most critical part of forest creation.

Hence, we have decided to make necessary changes to our open source manuals to make the process of forest surveys and native species selection easier to understand.

Kindly check this space after October 2019 for improved versions of our open source SOPs.

Meanwhile, please go through this document to understand more about the method and what it’s not.
