ReNaFo: Who We Are

Purpose

As a nonprofit organization, the International Association for Restoration of Native Forest, or ReNaFo, aims at the restoration of natural forests.
The climate crisis is proceeding, but the deforestation of tropical rain forests continues. Field fires are spreading under drought around the world. To pass on a healthy environment to our children, the restoration of the natural forest is crucial. ReNaFo aims to restore natural forests as one of the essential actions against climate crisis and natural disasters.

Method

Our reforestation theory is based on ecological science. Along with the natural system, young seedlings of many species confirmed as the potential natural vegetation are planted in high density (for more details, see the page on Practical Method). This method was proposed and has been conducted by Dr. Akira Miyawaki and is also known as the Miyawaki Method. Since the first natural forest was restored 50 years ago, all these forests are growing successfully worldwide.
