Acacia Eco is an organisation that specialises in executing land restoration projects across India. Acacia works with a strong mission of enabling climate-positive cities that cancel out more carbon than they emit.
Acacia deploys several plantation techniques, including high-density forests with multiple species, inspired by the Miyawaki method. This results in faster growth, greater biodiversity, and higher density within the forests. All these collectively aid significantly higher carbon sequestration. Acacia has restored over 100 acres of land, and planted more than 850,000 trees, covering nearly 75 different native tree species.
