A phenomenal book detailing Miyawaki's works and his system of recreating forests within urban dead zones. This book also details how easy it is to create a mature forest within two decades, as he has done many times over across the globe. Miyawaki also points out the environmental problems man has created by leveling natural forests and how these situations can be rectified.

A Must Read for any who is passionate about greening spaces, for this book gives you case studies and examples in Japan, of how scientific greening practices have actually helped Industries contrary to the view of many.
