Planting Pole / Plant Pot

Planting Pole
Planting Pole

Forests that are all ash from wildfires take a lot of manpower, money, and time to rebuild.‘Planting Pole’ is a product designed to solve such efforts at once and rebuild forests with less effort in a short time.

This stick-shaped product helps plants in the product grow and rebuild forests so long as a person plants ‘Planting Pole’ on the ground. The entire body protects the plants from external hazards until they grow to a certain size. ‘Planting Pole’ is also made of bioplastics, enabling eco-friendly decomposition, and the degraded elements act as manure to plants.
