The Miyawaki forestation method is a unique way to create an urban forest and is pioneered by Japanese botanist Akira Miyawaki. ... In the Miyawaki technique, various native species of plants are planted close to each other so that the greens receive sunlight only from the top and grow upwards than sideways.
Its benefits include lowering temperature, making soil nutritious, supporting local wildlife and sequestration of carbon. The idea is to mimic nature while creating these tiny cross-sections of tiny islands called Miyawaki forests, added Sen.
