AVI Global Plast Uses Revolutionary Miyawaki Method that can grow a 100-year old forest in just 10 years
By aviadminDecember 24, 2019
AVI Global Plast, Daman has created a self-sustaining urban forest in its backyard by planting 2500 trees in 9000 sq feet. in one year, which has successfully managed to improve the oxygen content in the atmosphere by 30%.
This eco-friendly initiative began in February 2019, with the help of the extremely successful Akira Miyawaki technique of creating forests. The Miyawaki Method uses a multi-layer forest technique that places special emphasis on restoring native species that are best suited to the topography and climate of the area. Such forests can grow up to 10 times faster, be 30 times denser and 100 times more bio-diverse.

Limited species varieties
Extensive maintenance required
Susceptible to pests and diseases
AVI Global Plasts’ Multi-layer forest
30 trees per square foot
25-50 species varieties
No maintenance after 3 years
Resilient to pests and diseases
Firstly, the soil was tested to identify the nutrition lacked by the soil. Then, the plant species local to Daman and climate was identified. Suitable biomass available locally (within 50 km) like cattle manure was identified to nourish the soil. The soil was then loosened up using heavy machinery to plant the saplings and pack them together densely. Within just 12 months of this initiative, a high-density forest with forest pathways has already been developed.
Once the forest grows densely and within a space of 8 to 10 months, sunlight cannot penetrate the green cover. Consequently, the forest goes into a self-preservation mode as a result, saving every drop of water and dry leaf that can be converted to humus. Fighting for sunlight accelerates the growth of trees, resulting in a faster generation of forest cover.
Forests have an impact on the ecology touching all elements: (Will come in the form of icons)
Tress In urban environments, trees absorb pollutant gases like nitrogen oxides, ozone, and carbon monoxide, and sweep up particles like dust and smoke.
India contributes 5% to global CO2 emissions. In cities, trees have the capacity to reduce the overall temperature by up to eight degrees Celsius.
A single tree acts as the natural habitat to hundreds of species of insects, fungi, moss, mammals, and plants.
Trees serve as natural sponges. They collect, filter rainfall and release it slowly into streams and rivers. They provide the most effective land cover for the maintenance of water quality.
As a part of its long-term commitment towards ecological sustainability, AVI Global Plast has taken this green initiative of building urban forests in Daman to combat the the issue of ecological imbalance that is becoming a cause for concern, due to deforestation. In a attempt to reduce carbon footprint, AVI Global Plast strategically plans to expand urban forests to provide citizens with healthier, happier, and enriched lives.
