Castle Green Forest
An urban forest to mitigate pollution and bring biodiversity.
The forest will act directly on its local environment. This area is heavily polluted and an urban biodiversity desert. The denseness of the Miyawaki method allows maximum potential Co2 drawdown and pollution mitigation. The trees chosen will also be the ones that have evolved to live and even thrive in the urban environment.
Forest Maker James Godfrey-Faussett
“The Castle Green forest is an example of bringing an urban forest right into the heart of where they are needed most. This area is heavily polluted and lacking biodiversity. The dense forest will go some way to mitigating airborne pollution and provide a peaceful haven for biodiversity to set up home and thrive among the urban sprawl.”
