Takeaways:

  • Miyawaki forests are tiny urban forests that can have a huge impact on the environment and require very little intervention.
  • They impact local biodiversity (by providing 20 percent more species) and grow much quicker and therefore absorb more CO2 than mono-cultures such as timber forests.
  • Not to mention the affect urban greening can have on communities – including improving their mental health, protecting soils from erosion, reducing air pollution and has the potential combat urban heat island effects.
