Guerrilla reforestation
« on: December 19, 2015, 07:31:26 AM »
Hey all,

Has anyone ever tried guerrilla reforestation? Well I suppose reforestation might be a bit of a grand idea, but has anyone created a small wood in a public area with seedbombs or rooted cuttings? What species did you use? I guess willow would be good as it is fast growing and taking a cutting is as easy as putting a twig in the ground and keeping it watered.

Willow trees suck up a lot of water, so you need to research any tree thoroughly before you plant it!  Generally, they should best be natives, or secondly productive noninvasive nonnatives.

Sometimes you can do it yourself but sometimes it can be easier to call in one of the landscaping companies in your area especially when the jobs a big one!

I guess you need some more research about what you want to plant. Willow needs a lot of water. So you better do some research

I've done this in my area many times. The plots are really beginning to fill up and add some life to the space. I have a tree removal company and I mainly focus on taking away diseased trees that have no other resort, but still feel bad about taking them down. So I have used small scale reforestation as a way to contribute to bringing more nature to the area for every tree I take down.
