You Know Forest Projects Will Help in Rebalance the Earth’s Climate

The increment of human activities on earth causes a drastic environmental change on the planet and also increases global warming and due to that many animal and bird populations are under threat. The most important is, the forest is said to be the most useful and best tool for humanity which is responsible for a good climate but deforestation happening around the world causes more pollution and harmful gases in the environment.

Trees give us shade, absorb carbon dioxide, recycle water, and provide habitat to other plants and birds but due to continuing deforestation, these habitats of birds and plants are taken from them. And that is why now the world is taking the initiative to grow more trees, the trillion of trees initiative has been taken to plant in the forest which will help to re-balance the earth’s climate.

As trees follow the process called photosynthesis where plants naturally absorb carbon dioxide gas and release oxygen which is essential for living organisms. But trees can process more things because of the size of their trunks, the root structures, and the green leafy canopy. N India, there are lots of initiatives that have been launched to plant saplings across the country and reduce pollution.

Forest Projects

The different state has launched a green initiative to grow the plant, The Indian government has allocated $6.2 billion (€5.2 billion) for the tree-planting across the country.
Even more recent projects like Trillion Trees, the World Economic Forum’s 1T, and the UN’s follow-up ‘Great Green Wall for Cities’ highlight tree planting and forest regeneration as the most effective nature-based solution for runaway CO2 emissions.

1T uses research data that shows that planting nearly one billion hectares (2.2 billion acres) of trees in the right places could remove 25 % of the CO2 from Earth’s atmosphere. Meanwhile, in the USA the Great Green Wall for Cities project would create urban green areas for wider forest restoration across both Africa and Asia. Once the project will complete the wall, it will capture an estimated 0.5-5 billion metric tons of CO2 every year. And, if well managed, the urban forests could also reduce air temperature, lower the risk of flood, and improve air quality by filtering out pollutants from the environment.

The city trees are actually sucking more CO2 out of the atmosphere than was thought. Climate scientists know that forests soak up more than they release by absorbing 30 % of carbon emissions from fossil fuels. But new studies show that outlying forest edges and urban trees grow almost twice as quickly, and store carbon faster, than the trees deep inside the forest.

Projects proposed by a Japanese botanist and are now creating tiny community forests across the planet, using native trees to provide shade, support plants, and animals, and store carbon in city centers.

A researcher at the US Forest Service has studied using trees in urban area settings to sequester carbon for more than 30 years. Trees not only cool their surroundings and filter out CO2, but they also recycle tiny particulate matter pollutants. But apart from the trees that grow quickly, it is the main point to figuring out which exact species work best to improve air quality depending on many factors including soil, local climate, and site conditions.
