Strengthening The Planet •

Growing back forests is the goal, but what is the bigger picture? According to a 2016 study, this type of regrowth actually makes the forest stronger against climate change. Basically, researchers found that these forests “absorb and store atmospheric carbon at roughly 11 times the rate of old-growth forests.” In plain English, that means a clearer and safer atmosphere for us and the planet.
