James grows urban forests around the UK with his company Wild Urban Spaces and with rewilding organisation SUGi. He is an expert in the use of the Miyawaki Method of afforestation, which is a Japanese approach to rapidly creating healthy, native forest ecosystems, and can be applied to small sites in urban contexts. 

In this episode we discuss:

  • The Miyawaki Method
  • The Forest of Thanks, a Miyawaki forest recently planted in London to express gratitude to NHS workers during the pandemic
  • How trees make it rain and also alleviate flooding
  • The mystery of Biodynamics in soil
  • Trees as tsunami defense 
  • And lots more!
