Reforestation program in China have good sides, but there are still things to consider especially when it comes to the biodiversity and the existing wildlife.
A new study from the University of Minnesota found secondary tropical forests are able to sequester 11 times more carbon than old-growth forests. Researchers say this will help conservationists manage forest better.
Following rampant deforestation in Europe, conservationists planted fast-growing, commercially valuable conifer trees, rather than native broadleaved trees. It turns out this type of forest management has accelerated climate change.
Imagine, each year, an army of drones take to the air and head off for a tireless workday of planting trees in some of the Earth's most heavily deforested regions. Like an overnight miracle, one billion new saplings could be sprouting from the ground each year, helping mitigate the rampant tree loss that is harming our world. Now a retired NASA expert wants to make this dream a reality with his drone-powered startup company.
