One of the frequently asked questions (FAQs) that Crowd Foresting gets is about the time taken for a full-fledged Miyawaki forest to form. According to our understanding, the Miyawaki Model of Afforestation is the fastest and the most durable model available today. Normally, a natural forest evolves over a period of 100 years, and we cannot create a natural forest. But if we follow the Miyawaki method of afforestation for simulating a forest, we get excellent results in just a few years! Within three-five years, you get a growth pattern similar to that of a 15-20 year-old natural forest. Another advantage of the Miyawaki model is that the maintenance of the forest ends after three years. Thereafter, there is no need for any maintenance, and the forest grows on its own.
