Miyawaki forest establishes itself as a great success

The first Miyawaki forest that was grown on a lot of land in Rialto Square has been a huge hit. 8,500 plants have been spread across the forest. Around 6,000 of these are fruit plants that live in the Pothohar area. Fruits have also grown on the trees of Cordia myxa (Cordia myxa), including guavas, figs, mulberries, and Grunde. They can be ready to eat during Ramadan and in the next few months, so they can be used.

It has more than 6,000 fruit trees, so the dense forest has become a place for birds to rest. A lot of birds have moved back to the forest. A lot of quails, Myanas, doves, and parrots have been coming to the area.

Families are also starting to go for walks in the Miyawaki forest. Among other things, this is because of the beautiful benches along the forest that draw a lot of people. People of all ages can sit on these benches to enjoy the sunrise and sunset. Colourful lights have also been put in.

There are now four more Miyawaki forests in Rawalpindi because this one worked out well. Spring tree-planting is still going on, and these forests have been added to the list.

Pakistan Railways will grow one forest, and the Cantonment Board area has been chosen for a second forest to be grown. There will have to be a formal permission from both institutions before things go any further.

Birds will be able to breed in the dense forests during this time of year. There are small cages on the trees to protect the nests. There are beautiful wooden colours on these cages for the birds’ sake. This is how it works: As a bonus, they will also help Rawalpindi get rid of the environmental scourge.

The projects should be done in the next three months.

Aslam is a special adviser for climate change to the Prime Minister. He will open the forest this year. When the first Miyawaki Forest of Rawalpindi was finished, it was done by June of that year, which is 2021. According to the head of the RDA, Miyawaki is the best way to fight in the jungle. This forest was put together by us in the first week of April, 2021. There have been plants on it for three-and-a-half months. They have grown to a height of 8 to 10 feet. Monsoon rains have helped them grow even faster.

The urban forest of Jauharabad is poised to become a trailblazer

The urban forest of Jauharabad is poised to become a trailblazer

The urban forest of Jauharabad is poised to become a trailblazer. By designating the Miyawaki forest established in Jauharabad town near Khushab as a’model forest,’ the Ministry of Climate Change (MOCC) has advocated installing similar initiatives along the motorway and in the surrounding areas of Multan.

According to Forest Department SDO Abdul Ghaffar, Japanese scientist Akira Miyawaki pioneered urban forest planting in 1970. Using this technology can plant forests on land ranging from one marla to a few acres in cities. They supported the concept in light of trees’ role as “the earth’s lungs.”

Pakistan has also adopted the concept, with the forest service establishing a model forest on five kanals of land in the Khushab district. The official stated that Miyawaki woods in cities might help clean up and improve the environment by reducing greenhouse gases and other pollutants in the water, air, and land.

“The area is deeply excavated, and the soil is amended with various local nutrients and fertilizers, including nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. Finally, a forest department employee explained that the site is leveled and then planted with huge trees, shrubs, herbs, and grass,” a forest department employee explained.

Certain types of trees are kept apart, while compatible ones are planted closer together and given extra care, he explained. “Jauharabad is being marketed as a Miyawaki forest model because it was grown using the traditional Japanese method.” The forest received a total of Rs612,000 in three years, he stated, which is a pittance compared to its importance and utility.

District Forest Officer Naseem Iqbal Butt stated that the Miyawaki approach results in a tenfold increase in tree cover compared to natural forests. “These forests are far denser than genuine jungles.” He stated that urban forestry aids in the elimination of pollutants in densely populated regions and contributes to the creation of beauty and a pleasant environment.

“Approximately 25 tree and plant species have been planted in Joharabad’s Miyawaki forest, including Sahanjana, Behera, Sukh Chain, Palkan, Sheesham, Darikh, Bacain Bottle Brush, Table Palm, Kachnar, Jaman, Pipal, Phatix, Kakar, Santha, Mulberry, Mara, Motiya, Gulab, Amaltas, and Neem. Similar trees have been planted, and the spacing between them follows the Miyawaki method,” he explained.

“It took a great deal of effort on the part of our personnel to transform the Miyawaki forest in the Khushab forest department into a model forest, as declared by the federal ministry,” he explained.

Arshad Nadeem Malik, an arborist, commented on the initiatives, stating that they had delegated duty for the Miyawaki woodlands to the forest department by the Parks and Horticulture Authority (PHA). “The forest department in Khushab and the PHA in Sargodha have been assigned the project. It is because the forest department employs the most qualified personnel for tree planting.”

He stated that the forest department is investing approximately Rs700,000 per acre in the Miyawaki program, including protecting it. “According to reports, the PHA is spending Rs2.9 million per acre on a forest being cultivated using the Miyawaki method. The government should cede control of all forests to the forest service.”

According to Abdul Rehman, a resident, the Miyawaki plantation appeared to be the most effective way to improve the environment.

In the first Miyawaki forest, about 8,000 trees will bloom

In the first Miyawaki forest, about 8,000 trees will bloom. The first Miyawaki forest project was planted on  Murree Road, Rialto Chowk. The Miyawaki Forest Beautification Project has also been launched due to its success, and it will be open to visitors and families in October.

In the Miyawaki forest along Murree Road, forty different fruit, shade, floral trees have been planted. These trees have now grown to a height of six to eight feet, with dozens of them reaching a height of ten feet.

In this lovely forest, new modern grass has been planted, and little paths have been created inside the woodland to function as pedestrian paths. Following that, a central entry gate to the forest will be built, with the Pothohar region’s culture prominently displayed.

Traditional Pothohar fruits such as kachnar (mountain ebony), Sohan Jan (drum stick), fig, plum, dried assyrian plum, grewia asiatica, olive, gooseberry, berry, phalai, pomegranate, beriberi, sang jalo, apple, patagin, guava, loquat, stone apple have also been planted, according to Chairman Rawalpindi Development Authority (RD In 2022, these fast-growing fruit trees will begin yielding fruit.

He further claimed that Nasir Mirza, the Rawalpindi Chamber of Commerce, had donated benches to the forest. Neither the government nor the RDA had spent a penny on the Miyawaki forest. This environmentally friendly initiative was funded entirely by traders, chambers of commerce and industry, and donations from Pakistani immigrants’ children living in the United States.

Miyawaki, according to the RDA chief, is the best jungle technique. They planted the forest in the first week of April. The plants have grown to a height of 8 to 10 feet in three and a half months.
The recent monsoon rains have accelerated their growth. The forest’s beautifying would be completed in the following two months. Birds will return to the trees once the forest has reached full bloom and will build colorful wooden nests in the trees.
