Micro Forests

Installation Process

About Our Micro Forests


The design and planting of each of our Micro Forests is unique as they are site specific.

We will carry out a survey of the area and assess site conditions and feasibility

A subsequent design and installation programme will be implemented.


To achieve the rapid growth and high success rate of the saplings in our forests, the preparation and planting processes are critical.

Step 1

We will lay a 100-150mm deep mineral enriched topsoil layer.

Step 2

We de-compact the existing subsoil to depths of 1m by injecting high pressure air.

Step 3

We inject Biochar, mycorrhiza and organic nutrients.

Step 4

We supply cell grown trees and shrubs from 30cm – 60cm in height cm in height.

Step 5

We add worms as an optional extra (highly recommended!)

Step 6

We plant the trees in the prepared topsoil with the worms.

Step 7

We spread & lay 100mm deep mulch.

Step 8

We let Nature take over with minimal maintenance.
