Forest Conservation and Restoration at SKYi Wildwoods

For hundreds of years forests have helped us, now it's our turn to return the favour.


To understand how much thought is going into creating the Eden that you will inhabit, here's a picture of how we are bringing the forests alive again. Wildwoods is being created in close consultation with our ecological partner Oikos. We're not just replanting on your land, we're restoring it to make it richer than we found it.

Forest Restoration is a specialized form of reforestation. It differs from conventional tree plantations in that its primary goals are biodiversity recovery and environment protection.


A fresh breath of air for starters. At any time, forests account for as much as double the amount of carbon in the atmosphere. Even as more manmade carbon is produced, forests remove around three billion tons of manmade carbon every year. This amounts to about 30% of all carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels. In short, trees help us to continue to breathe despite all the pollution we create. An increase in the overall forest cover around the world will help to slow down the devastation effects of global warming. Forest also preserve biodiversity, protect microclimates and create a long term virtuous cycle that even leads to greater economic prosperity for locals when executed in partnership.

We're bringing back the birds and the bees. So, they're still around for your children.


You might encounter new furry and feathered neighbors on every hike through your neighborhood. We identified hundreds of species of birds and animals before the project. Our overarching ecological strategy has ensured that every-thing, from natural water resources to native tree species, has been kept in mind in our conservation and planning efforts. Which means you can meet a 100 year-old tree, camp by an ancient watering hole and hear the chirp of foreign visitors every migratory season.


For instance, the Mangi Fera Indica, better known as the mango tree attracts many birds, Pale billed and thick billed flower peckers being amongst them. Symbiotic relationships between plants, birds and insects are reestablished setting the bedrock for the restoration of larger eco-systems.

Before we dug in new foundations, we decided to plant deeper roots.


You'll find little touches of earth love everywhere on and around your property. From the hedges that edge your gardens and orchards, to the soil your children will make mud-pies in, we're creating a space that will truly allow you to exist in harmony with nature.


To protect that land from overgrazing and slash and burn practices, we've planted a thick living thorny hedge of native Nirgudi, Pipar, Bhoma, Bamani. This will prevent indiscriminate grazing and allow the land to heal.

Conventionally, locals set fire to the grazing lands in the mistaken belief that this improves the soil. This has a devastating impact on the plants, trees and animals of the region, setting the eco-system back to ground zero every year. We're protecting the land from such fires in the future. A fire line has been created with a buffer belt of 10 to 15 feet width through controlled fire. With a kindling free zone surrounding the land, it is protected from forest fires.

Rebuilding soil fertility and moisture

  1. Plow composted organic waste into the soil to increase fertility.
  2. Plant water-rich grasses to migrate away from drought-resistant varieties. This helps establish micro-ecosystems for small fauna and alters the soil composition.
