Planting trees is a powerful means of connecting people with their community. Trees clean the air and water, provide habitat for wildlife, produce fresh fruit for neighbors, and shelter us from the hot Texas sun.

In other parts of the world, tree-planting projects didn’t just fail, but also harmed existing ecosystems or ways of life. Here’s the thing with trees; they are a big tool under our tool-belt. But we have been treating them as though they are identical to the climate tools we are so far most familiar with; which are industrial products to produce clean electricity. We manufacture them in Fordist mass production, and roll them out in utility-scale mega projects.

Today, the charity works to reduce America’s carbon footprint, beautify our neighborhoods, and instill a love of nature in children through their plant a tree project. The aim isn’t just to plant trees but to offer packaged solutions that can be applied rapidly across developed and developing countries. The firm describes its product as “restoration in a box” and estimates that its restoration goal can sequester between 7 and 13 billion tons of CO2 every year for several decades. An analysis of satellite imagery and interviews with hundreds of households, however, revealed that decades of planting by the government — amounting to hundreds of millions of seedlings — “had almost no impact on forest canopy cover,” Fleischman wrote on Twitter. The researchers also measured a shift in the type of trees within the ecosystem, away from species that locals prefer for firewood and animal fodder. In other words, residents of Himachal Pradesh actually had fewer useful forest resources.

The founder of Church’s Chicken took his money and bought 5,500 acres of cowburnt land, and set about restoring it. Basically you’re looking at the balance of doing it right and replanting to a “vision” of the space. The environment will slowly go through the evolutionary succession above, but the ploughing action did a “hard reset” – the exact opposite action of what you wanted. If you really wanted to do this, the key is actually first OBSERVE. That said applying similar a similar approach in Canada yields next to nothing partially because we already have so much forest cover and our emissions are so high. So as other posters have mentioned it’s an it depends situation.

This is a place for the rational discussion of the science of climate change.

One last thought – unlike agricultural seed, more than a few native species can be very effing difficult to sprout.
