These Drones Will Plant 40,000 Trees in a Month, By 2028 They'll Have Planted 1 Trillion
"The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says that it’s necessary to plant 1 billion hectares of trees—a forest roughly the size of the entire United States—to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius... Existing forests need to be protected while new trees are planted."
Trees Are Time Machines
If cities want to keep the benefits of their urban forests, they must plan for a future with a different, more hostile climate.
Understanding City Forests
New research challenges the misconception that urbanization causes invasive species in urban forests, instead indicating that younger forests, whose canopies are not closed and are more exposed, have a higher risk of invasive species. Alternatively, land use history could impact invasion rates.
“A next step in our research is to determine if we can predict invasion based on how long a forest canopy has been intact by analyzing aerial photos,” said Trammell. “This type of work could help identify forests that need invasive species management.”
