Our process
कैच - वन संरक्षण प्रणाली
Inspired from Miyawaki technique
Inspired from Miyawaki technique, we work with private and public stakeholders to plant and maintain dense forests under कैच - वन संरक्षण प्रणाली.
Identify the Native Species fo Trees
We will visit the land and nearby area and nursery to know the local species for dense foresting. We  will make a list of all native species in your area with an ideal height between 1.5ft. to 2.5ft.
Division of Plant According Height
We will select species for a multi-layered canopy, plants like shrub layer (6 feet), sub-tree layer  (6-12 feet), tree layer (20-40 feet) and canopy layer (above 40 feet).
Land preparation for plantation
We will extract soil till 3 ft. deep and will add fresh soil and cocopeat or rice husk or biomass to  ensuring smooth and quick perforation of water to the roots. By using biomass, we are softening soil  for fast growth of plants.
Mulch the soil with organic and bio-degradable ingredients, like agro-waste. This step protects the  soil and prevents sunlight from directly hitting the plants.
Fertilizers and Vermi Compost
Finally, we will add organic fertilisers like manure or vermicompost. Include some beneficial  microbes for nutrition and to keep the pesticides at bay.
Marking and Plantation
We will design and give marking as per selected design. We will dig hole and plant 5 native saplings  per square metre and level the soil around the stem of the plant.
Boring and support sticks
To ensure that plants do not bend in the initial period, insert support sticks inside the  soil.
We fence the dedicated land to prevent any intervention from the local groups of domestic animals that might harm the plantation. To make sure that the plantation is undisturbed.
Maintenance and monitoring system
Watering activity the forest daily for 15 days and keep the forest free from  weeds for the first two years. We will monitor the proper growth and any changes or  improvements.
Combining Miyawaki technique and our own modifications we have been able to speed up the nature’s process for sustainable future.

Benefits of growing dense forests

Air Quality Improvement
Urban forests act as natural air filters, absorbing pollutants such as nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter. A single mature tree can absorb around 48 pounds of carbon dioxide per year. Additionally, trees release oxygen during photosynthesis, contributing to improved air quality.
Temperature Regulation
A small urban forest can significantly impact local temperatures. Trees provide shade that reduces surface temperatures and the heat island effect. In urban areas, a tree's shade can lower surrounding temperatures by as much as 9°F (5°C), creating a more comfortable microclimate.
Biodiversity Conservation
Even a compact urban forest can host a range of species. Birds, insects, and small mammals find habitats within these green spaces, contributing to urban biodiversity and ecosystem balance.
Carbon Sequestration
Urban trees play a crucial role in sequestering carbon dioxide. On average, a tree absorbs about 48 pounds of carbon dioxide annually. A small urban forest can collectively sequester significant amounts of carbon, making a tangible contribution to climate change mitigation.
Water Management
Urban forests help manage rainwater by absorbing excess water and reducing surface runoff. Tree roots also enhance soil structure, allowing water to penetrate and reducing the risk of flooding in heavy rainfall events.
