In our yards, our parks and along our streets we plant lines of lonely trees. But a tree is not a forest. Lonely trees are severed from their ecological communities—at the mercy of wind, weather and disease. Rewilding with Little Forests re-enchants our yards and our city with biodiversity... what Robert MacFarlane calls “the wondrous, teeming, calamitously threatened variety & variability of life on Earth, sometimes measured by species richness.”
Biodiversity—diversity within species, between species & of ecosystems—is declining faster
than at any time in human history ~Global Assessment Report on Biodiversity & Ecosystem Services, 2019, IPBES
Little Forests are natural climate
Little Forests bloom around the world
A Tiny Forest Ranger are children from a
primary school or childcare center in the area
who protect and care for the forest.
They are nature restorers, nature tellers and
nature storytellers. They plant the forest,
manage the forest, investigate and tell family,
classmates and local residents about the forest.
Tiny Forest is a Miyawaki inspired forest trademarked to
ensure it follows a speciﬁc methodology
SUGi (sugiproject.com) is a global network of foresters,
rewilders, who grow ultra-dense, biodiverse min-forests of
only native species
Toyoda-Gosei is creating native forests at 60 locations
Boomforest, Paris citizen’s group
“Finding the balance of nature around us, this is our purpose and for this reason we
incentivize the restoration of biodiversity in the places where we live by creating forests.
We imagine them local and wild in all their expression, free and accessible to all and
integrated into our daily life.”
Earthwatch aims to plant over 150 forests in the UK by 2023
Theory behind Miyawaki inspired Little
The forest is the root of all life; it is the womb that revives
our biological instincts, that deepens our intelligence and
increases our sensitivity as human beings.
Comparison between classical succession theory &
Miyawaki’s new succession theory
"Get out there into the ﬁeld—there are three billion years of
the history of life out there, there is a real life drama
unfolding under our great sun that the German
government could never achieve, no matter how many
million marks they threw into research. Your own body
should be the instrument to measure it—study it by looking
at it with your eyes, touching it with your hands, smell it,
taste it, feel it!"
