Highlight of the Miyawaki Forest at Chalai School
The unique feature of this afforestation programme was that it was carried out under the guidance of two of the most globally renowned scientists, Prof. (Dr) Elgene O. Box (Geography Department, University of Georgia, Athens, USA) and Ms Kazue Fujiwara (Emeritus Professor of Yokohama National University), who have worked in close association with Prof. (Dr) Akira Miyawaki and have been actively involved in Dr Miyawaki's method of afforestation.
