A density-matrix renormalization-group (DMRG) method for highly anisotropic two-dimensional (2D) systems is presented. The method consists of applying the usual DMRG in two steps. In the first step, a pure one-dimensional calculation along the longitudinal direction is made in order to generate a low-energy Hamiltonian. In the second step, the anisotropic 2D lattice is obtained by coupling in the transverse direction the 1D Hamiltonians. The method is applied to the anisotropic quantum spin-half Heisenberg model on a square lattice.
