Planting Trees Won't Save The World
Play • 23 min

We understand that humans have a dominating role in causing the climate crisis, therefore a great deal of emphasis has been made on mitigating the effects of anthropogenic climate change. One such tactic is reforestation, which acts to both compensate for the dramatic human-induced loss of trees and to create more carbon sinks to offset anthropogenic emissions. However, it isn't as simple as it seems; this notion of extensive tree planting being the solution to mitigating climate change is infact harmful for ecosystems and functionality of forests in the long-term, including their ability to sequester carbon. Listen to this episode to hear why tree planting is really as complex of a process as is climate change itself.
