Restoring degraded and fire-prone land in Greece with the Miyawaki Method.
This method of planting is 100x biodiverse, 100% natural and 30x denser compared to monoculture tree stands. In 2-3 years only, we create a maintenance-free, biodiverse forest.

This project is especially important for land management and the prevention of forest fires. It offers an alternative to the pine monoplanations that have come to dominate the local landscape and are highly susceptible to fires. In planting a diverse mix of species, this pocket of forest could potentially help combat future blazes. For this forest we will be using 16 native species!

Planting Trees, cultivating Peace. WWF implement ecological restoration actions hand in hand with local communities in regions affected by armed conflict in Colombia, such as the National Park Sierra de la Macarena. Our objective is not only to recover transformed forest, and their associated biodiversity, by planting native trees, but also to provide much-needed alternative livelihoods to local communities, such as the management of non-timber forest products such as oils, fibers and native bees.  These restoration actions are key to WWF work in Colombia in supporting the Government in the quest to strengthen peacebuilding and conservation efforts by involving local communities in conserving biodiversity while improving their living conditions.

Rewilding Water Catchments in Buea, Cameroon with the Miyawaki Method.

This method of planting is 100x biodiverse, 100% natural and 30x denser compared to monoculture tree stands. In 2 years only, we created a maintenance-free, biodiverse forest.

Though the area is blessed with abundant water resources, local inhabitants have faced a serious water crisis for a generation, as a result of poor water management. Population and rapid urbanization put even greater pressure on the water resources of this community.

This water catchment is the fourth chapter of this critical community project and will bring 10 native species back to the local ecosystem.

Reviving India’s lost desert forest in Rajasthan.
This method of planting is 100x biodiverse, 100% natural and 30x denser compared to monoculture tree stands. In 2-3 years only, we create a maintenance-free, biodiverse forest.

 

This is an ambitious project looking to bring back native species that have existed in the region for thousands of years. Our goal is not only to create a forest and restore biodiversity but also to build a research center for reforestation. This project will be a destination for anyone in India researching native trees, seeds as well as techniques for reforestation on arid terrain. For this forest we will be using 25 native species!
