「未来」へつなぐチャリティ

(Proposed project)

Managing forests, planting trees and flowers; developing mountain trails; reducing damage from wild animals; restoring abandoned farmland; creating mountain villages to provide a safe and comfortable life for residents

In recent years, more and more forests are being abandoned or poorly managed. Also, the farms and mountainside hamlets that have been abandoned have been destroyed due to the waning of forestry and the shrinking or aging of the population in the area. This destruction has in turn threatened the environment for our water supply sources. In order to guarantee clean and delicious drinking water for future generations, we need to act now to restore our mountains and forests to health while making a conscious effort to create an environment where local residents, essential for forest management and maintenance, can continue to live in good health, high spirits, and with peace of mind.

(Proposed project)

Afforestation that produces less pollen;
thinning old cedar forests and planting
cedar varieties that emit less pollen to reduce overall pollen counts
 

One of the sources of Tokyo's drinking water is located in a forest in Tama, which provides us with various significant benefits by protecting the water source and absorbing and storing CO2, among other functions. Due to dwindling demand for domestic lumber, Japanese cedar forests that are 30 or more years old are growing, causing Japanese cedar pollinosis. To cope with this situation, we are cutting down old Japanese cedars and replacing them with a cedar variety that produces less pollen.
