A tiny forest in Dagenham

The Tiny Forest project was organised by Earthwatch. The Dagenham team including Pitman Tozer Architects and Peabody, planted 350 trees.​​​​​​

The trees included a mix of native species - including hornbeam, common privet, willow, holly and elder - planted densly over a 200sqm area and based on an established forest management method developed in the 1970s by Dr Akira Miyawaki.

The Miyawaki Method is one of the most effective tree planting methods for creating forest cover quickly on degraded land that has been used for other purposes such as agriculture or construction. It is effective because it is based on natural reforestation principles, i.e. using trees native to the area and replicating natural forest regeneration processes.
