Belipola Arboretum 

The Worlds First Analog Forest
 

ABOUT

In order to share human space with the forests we have created the worlds first Analog Forest (AF). A forest that is similar to a 'native forest' considering structure and function. 

Here we offer:

Analog Forestry and related education workshops

(affiliated with the International Analog Forestry Network IAFN)

 

 Pay-to-Stay

$20 per person per night / all meals included

or 

Volunteer (based on skill and pre-discussed terms)

Belipola Arboretum offers you the hands-on-experience of how a forest system can be restored in a very short time in order to support an early onset of ecological maturity. At Belipola this maturity is complemented by a mix of native and exotic plant diversity that is rare, useful.

IN-SITU:

- Collection of rare and endemic trees growing in symbiosis

- Study AF methodology

- Collaborate on ways to implant AF on your lands

- Research opportunity [soil, biomass and biodiversity]

- Building value-chains : New markets and economic potential 

Belipola Arboretum is a man made forest where ecological ideas are practiced in experimental as well as experiential ways. Residencies and research opportunity is available via the International Analog Forestry Network and building awareness to increase biomass and biodiversity (B:B ratios) in over 20 countries.
