Quoting June 2020 version of https://www.afforestt.com/methodology In August 2019 our trainers from Japan were in India. Together we visited some of our old forests, did a PNV (Potential Natural Vegetation) survey and also planted a forest. During the training, we realised that our Open Source manuals need to focus more on PNV survey as the selection of species is the most critical part of forest creation.
Hence, we have decided to make necessary changes to our open source manuals to make the process of forest surveys and native species selection easier to understand.
We are in the process of creating free, easy to follow video tutorials to help people understand our forest creation techniques better. These will be released soon. Kindly check this space and our social media to receive information about the release of these videos.
Meanwhile, please go through this document to understand more about the method and what it’s not.
