City gardeners, together with residents, planted the first microforest in Warsaw, using the method of a Japanese botanist. Zieleniec was built at the foot of the Warsaw Uprising Mound.

“Together with over 100 volunteers, we planted a micro-forest in the entrance square to the 'Burza' Action park according to the method of the Japanese botanist Akira Miyawaki. The forest consists of over 2,000 native plant species,” said the Green Management Board.

Over two thousand plants were planted on an area of ​​450 square meters, including 800 perennials and 1,350 trees and shrubs. According to a Japanese botanist, these should be native species; in the capital, these include: maples, hornbeams, wild apple trees, elms, lindens and rowan trees, and among the shrubs, plants valuable for birds: dogwoods, hawthorns, bumblebees, rowan trees and viburnums.

The Miyawaki Forest (also known as a pocket forest, micro forest) is a way to grow trees and shrubs up to twice as fast as in forest plantations, as well as to reduce maintenance treatments – including watering. It assumes planting trees and shrubs of native species and varieties in accordance with the habitat on a very small area and in high density – up to seven plants per square meter. The method's assumption is also to activate city residents, because such forests are planted with their participation.
