Castle Green Forest II

An urban forest to mitigate pollution and bring biodiversity.

Urban
Miyawaki Method
Land Forest

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.

"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 amongst the urban sprawl."

Primary school children from Monteagle School in Dagenham plant the new urban forest at Castle Green. Children in this community do not have as much access to wild nature; this forest will help alleviate this issue.
