THE MIYAWAKI METHOD
Miyawaki method is a technique pioneered by Japanese botanist Dr Akira Miyawaki, It is one of the pioneering methods of forest creation that has been proven to be successful in the most adverse soil and climate conditions. This method copies nature but speeds up the process rapidly. Miyawaki forests can grow into mature ecosystems in just 20 years – astonishingly fast when compared to the 200 years it can take a forest to regenerate on its own.
Saplings planted at 6 -12 inches
Height of average 12 – 15 feet in first year
Height of average 20-25 feet in second year
Acacia Eco engages with private and public stakeholders for execution of forestation projects in consulting or turn key approach.
1. SOIL AND WATER TESTING FOR SELECTED SITES
Tree selection and soil treatment requirements are determined based on the results
2. IDENTIFICATION OF TREE SPECIES FOR SITE
Native tree species are selected based on the soil/water, type of site and client preferences
3. PROCUREMENT OF MATERIAL AND SAPLINGS
Material like organic manure and saplings are procured, many of this comes from our in house nursery
4. SOIL PREPARATION AS PER MIYAWAKI METHODOLGY
The soil’s water retention capacity, perforation and available nutrition content is enhanced
5. MIYAWAKI METHOD CLUSTER PLANTATION
Cluster plantation has different tree species planted in close proximity - between 3 to 4 trees in 1 sq. m area
6. MAINTENANCE AND GROWTH MONITORING
Regular watering and weeding is done for two years post which the forest becomes self sustained
