What is Analog Forestry?

Analog Forestry is a system of ecological restoration that focuses on increasing biodiversity by imitating natural forest systems in order to create economically productive and environmentally mature forests.

This methodology allow us to build on traditional forest gardens, which are human-created analogs of the natural forest that serves needs such as food, fiber, timber, medicine, and water. It increases the biodiversity and ecological resilience of a landscape by making use of natural ecological succession and forest functions, consequently strengthening rural livelihoods.
