Dense Forest

About the Project

The Tropical Dense Forest project of “We for Environment” is a successful initiative that aims to create a self-sustainable dense forest with rich biodiversity of flora and fauna, restoration of degraded lands, environmental protection, water retention, and a clean and green future for coming generations. The project is based on the concept of Japanese botanist and ecologist, Akira Miyawaki’s dense forest, which resembles the forest that would exist in the absence of human activity and grows quickly with very good ecological resilience.

“We” judiciously selects native species in comparable geo-climatic context, systemically planted with proper sequence, patterns, ratio, and ingredients, which require minimum maintenance and become self-sustainable. This project plan includes the plantation of 900 trees of 30-40 different species in the area of 3000 square feet. The total market cost of the project is high, but “WE” has pioneered a low-cost module based on voluntary donations and self-induced contributions resulting in minimal costs for the project.

The normal cost of Rs 139 per square feet can be brought down to Rs 38 per square feet for the dense forest. The final cost for CII comes down to nearly 10 Rs/sqft, which is extremely reasonable provided the voluntary contributions are effected by both of us. We are eager to participate in the Green Mission by being worthy contributors to the Dense Forest Project and hope to make a significant impact on the environment and society.

Our Success Stories:

In August 2018, “We” collaborated with the State Reserve Police Force (SRPF) Battalion 14 to execute the Tropical Dense Forest Project in an area of 3000 square feet, planting 2700 trees through voluntary contributions and selfless efforts. The trees grew 10 feet in just six months, making it a major showcase of the NGO’s efforts.

In October 2018, “We” joined hands with The Sports Authority of India (SAI) to plant 1000 trees in the same 3000 square feet area using 45 native varieties of trees. The area was prepared by digging one meter deep and covering it with a layer of rich humus and compost. The project used native ingredients and low-cost materials, as well as efficient and effective technology, with contributions made voluntarily.
