Prime Minister Imran Khan will inaugurate the world’s biggest Miyawaki urban forest in Lahore on Monday (today) under the 10 Billion Tree Tsunami project.
The forest has been developed on over 100 kanals having a total of 165,000 plants that will grow 10 times quicker than in a normal forest owing to the unique Miyawaki technique. It uses specialised land preparation as well as indigenous varieties with varying growth rates to produce fast growing urban forests.
Another 53 Miyawaki forests are being grown in different parts of Lahore to create sinks for carbon as well as for better pollution abatement in the city. All have been geo-tagged to monitor their growth and development.
