Forests can now be grown in a city too

A simple technique has been developed that enables one to grow their own jungle. Afforestt, a Bengaluru-based startup draws upon a technique created and named after Japanese botanist Akira Miyawaki to make a forest.

The concept aims to grow dense, self-sustaining forests of native trees quickly: while a typical forest takes 100 years to mature, the technique accelerates the process ten times. A minimum area of 100sqm for the forest to make an impact. Experts identify soil type and add locally available biomass as nutrients. No pesticides are used.The trees grow 10 times faster and are 30 times denser than a normal plantation

Such small patches of forest are effective to create a pollution-free microclimate in cities.
