Miyawaki Forests are a "cheap, secret weapon to fighting climate change." Using a range of native trees and shrubs, they not only draw down carbon, but foster native biodiversity. Completely maintenance-free, they become wild and native forest after just three years.
“Let nature be nature” is a powerful principle—let peatlands, grasslands, and forests continue to do what they do best by protecting them from human disturbance. Where ecosystems have been degraded, restoration can help them recuperate form and function, including absorbing and storing more carbon over time.
By planting a range of native species, we recreate a self-sufficient system in which the different native plants provide crucial habitat for other animal, insect, fungal and bacterial life to thrive.
