While the Amazon is burning, activists around the world work to decrease carbon in the atmosphere by planting trees. What is that weird feeling I have? Could it be... hope?
New research by @CrowtherLab estimates that a worldwide planting programme could remove two-thirds of all the emissions that have been pumped into the atmosphere by human activities, a figure the scientists describe as “mind-blowing”. https://t.co/OjN3Ejx1Tn

I've recently been reading the brilliant "The Hidden Life of Trees" by Peter Wohlleben, which I HUGELY recommend, and one fascinating fact is that trees CREATE rain. Planting forest from the sea into the interior will funnel rain to deserts, and transform them. https://t.co/HDdsw4qxmJ

In addition to planting numerous tree saplings, Replanting is also very crucial while we develop cities or construct houses which involves cutting. Often, replanting is cheaper than cutting costs 👍. We saved around 6 grown trees today using regular equipment. pic.twitter.com/ESAMSMMQuo

In Scotland alone, around 9.5 million tonnes of CO2 each year are removed from the atmosphere by our forests — this is a clear example of why an increase in tree planting is so important in the fight against climate change.”#ActOnClimate #ClimateChange https://t.co/sqzO3xNu6i

Save the earth, plant a tree!
I got a message on the radio
But where it came from, I don't really know
And I heard these voices calling all over the world.
Cities, towns, and states all have programs that can help you plan your own personal tree-planting party! (Especially important because you don't want to plant a tree just anywhere, it can break up sewer pipes.)
