Even with so many efforts for tree planting, it is still not enough due to overpopulation high mortality rates. We cant catch up and we continue harming our environment. But thanks to these efforts of caring for our mother nature through this initiative, people become aware and being educated of the effects of abusing our environment.

I don't mean to say we're not affecting our environment, but are we really the ones polluting the air around us & creating a toxic atmosphere?

There are bombs constantly being tested. Underwater or in the middle of nowhere, it does not matter. The amount the average human being contributes to pollution is nowhere close the damage these tests are doing to our environment. I've always thought about it. Imagine how much pollution and damage a nuclear bomb underwater test does to the water we're swimming in and drinking. Let's not even mention the earthquakes and everything else.

And then we come back to my pollution for using my car on a not even daily basis for 3-mile distances once every few days.

We're going to start using EVs instead of gas-powered cars and we're going to plant millions or even billions of trees. This will help the environment. But what about the tests I mentioned above? These nuclear weapons of mass destruction will only continue to become even more powerful, even more harmful to the world. Nature will not forgive that and we will go through hell once nature decides to take its revenge.

Are you trying to say Hiroshima and Nagasaki will be uninhabitable for the next few hundred thousand years?
Start using electric vehicles? Electric vehicles exit for over 100 years, long before gas powered once.
You know a very simple effective way of pollution, reduce the power of your car by half and instantly have cut pollution in half.

The thing about EVs is that to make them you need Lithium, and producing Lithium pollutes more than a life-cycle of an average diesel car.
Sure, they don't pollute on the road, once they're made.
But how do you make the Lithium?

Frankly speaking If you think of global warming or worsening of environment then rather than planting trees, we need to stop using fossil fuels and start using reusable energy sources. Planting trees on different places of the world is not a small idea or even a faster solution to do. And it's definitely good for the planet to do in Long term as it cools the climate and creates more positive elements.

of course trees are very beneficial to our planet.
There are many benefits of trees, among others
- a good oxygen contributor to every living thing
- storing water in the soil for the needs of living things.
- able to reduce air pollution made from vehicles.
and many more benefits of trees for life.

Key questions scientists will need to address are how global reforestation might affect Earth’s surface albedo (reflectivity) and evapotranspiration. In the near term and locally, says Saatchi, forest restoration may actually have a warming effect. As the trees mature, the new forest canopy cover would presumably make Earth’s surface albedo darker, particularly in the Northern Hemisphere during periods of snow cover, causing it to absorb more heat. Increasing forest cover, particularly in the tropics, will increase evapotranspiration, causing a cooling effect. With Earth already warming significantly due to greenhouse gas emissions, will forest reforestation on a global scale have a net warming or cooling effect on our planet, and will the benefits of reforested areas absorbing more carbon outweigh their increased heat absorption?
Planting trees is very important for mother Earth and also to support all kind of race. It not only keeps check of O2 and CO2 in system but also keeps reduces harmful gases. Also, it provides habitats to many animals , bear fruits and also keeps earth colder. It also checks deforestation and kee checks on ground water.

I agree with you that we all know that planting trees is good for our planet We take oxygen from the tree and the tree protects the balance of our environment. Even so, we cut down the tree and called our own danger Many times the tree protects us from disaster.
Yes planting tree is very important to our environment its really big help especially to the flood. And we need more tree because it's help to absorb heat and big help to us also to prevent the fresh air.
Its really big help to us for disaster and to build home also many uses of tree so tree is very important to us so we need more plant tree for our own good.

Yes, you are right that is why we should plant more and more trees Trees protect our environment and are essential to life. Many times we are protected from disasters because of trees.

Trees are actually a very good way to protect earth from natural disasters. They're mostly useful in landslides and flooding, as they're strengthening the soil and preventing them from happening. The most important part is, though, imo the fact that they produce oxygen... before protecting ourselves from oxygen, we must assure the vital functions of our bodies.

there is this startup from the EU,

that is producing protein out of CO2 dense air

https://www.foodnavigator.com/Article/2019/07/15/Solar-Foods-makes-protein-out-of-thin-air-This-is-the-most-environmentally-friendly-food-there-is

this will solve in the long run the so called climate crisis

No. Co2 is at the bottom of the energy ladder.

not for plants, they eat CO2 to extract the Coal out of it

How do trees protect us from disaster?
Trees protect us from natural disasters in many ways such as in areas where the number of trees is high disaster damage is less. Many poor people are saved if the impact of the disaster goes on the trees and the loss of property and houses is reduced. Also, the tree increases the fertility of the soil.

There are a lot of benefits by the trees specially the food that are healthy to eat. What I think for now is how about creating a tree house? It can reduce the capacity to cut trees by doing that but that was too hard to create and to wait until the trees would grow.

You just said it is very difficult to build and wait until the trees grow but this is why we need to plant more if we cut a tree. The number of trees should not be reduced which is what we get from the tree which is essential for our survival. Along with food I get oxygen.

There is no harm in planting trees. Just see the temperature where there is no temperature vs area which is covered by tree. You will see a marked difference.

Okay, so where I live everywhere I go my shoes are crunching up acorns dropped by all the big trees. Now I think those are like, seeds, right? The trees drop them and they turn into more trees?

Now why should I plant trees?

Not only that. Why shouldn't I cut down trees?

Now I promise to only cut down trees where there is already green leafy stuff of one type or another growing. Can anybody explain why I should not cut down trees?

To answer this requires calculating all the effects in that regions bio of that species of tree versus the alternatives which would naturally arise to take its place. And in fact, every tree you plant will remove something else that is alive and growing there.

planting tree's is good. but its not the only solution and its definetly not the sole thing people should do because tree's alone would need to be planted multiple times the land space of the land. if it was just to be done for the 'carbon offset'

what needs to be done is to not think of a whole world problem but a regional problem.
for instance the northern hemisphere/europe will get colder while the equator will get warmer

things like desalinating sea water can be used to rehydrate land and find a replacement for natural sources of rivers.
heck even desalinate water and put it through a snow blower(it freezes water to make snow) to recover and cool down places like the arctic

other things like making deserted land into ponds/oasis. infact even make them into seaweed farms and algae ponds.
for better carbon capture than tree's

as for methane.
the stupid thing is they try to blame cow burps yet the real methane risk is from industrial oil/gas which can be replaced with renewable energy.

other things can be done like sending a couple large empty container ships to haul in the plastics in the ocean gyres where they grab the plastic using other ships/tech and the cargo ships are the large 'bucket' to collect it all.

as for tree's
well once land is de-forested. farmers use the land for crops and after time when the land is depleted they just leave it as desert and deforest another piece of land and repeat.
the solution is that the deserted land should be renovated back to life and not just left.
same for coal/gold mining, owners need to have an exit plan that includes putting the land back to how it was.
(this is tough because most corps will just file bankruptcy to escape obligations) but something needs to be done

different tree's in different locations help for different reasons. and as i said even things like seaweed and algea has a purpose to

there can been tall thin fast growing tree's for more rban area's and slow but wide folliage for other area's.
the main problem aint just cutting tree's its also not replacing them once they are done with the land.

as for habitation for animals. well that needs work too.. it aint just about plant tree's and walk away. its about know what tree's to plant, why and what for

I DO NOT TRADE OR ACT AS ESCROW ON THIS FORUM EVER.
Please do your own research & respect what is written here as both opinion & information gleaned from experience. many people replying with insults but no on-topic content substance, automatically are 'facepalmed' and yawned at

Reminds me of the millions of acres of farmland devastated by improper crop rotation.

Conclusion: Randomly planting random tree species in random places has almost a zero chance of being "good for the planet."

yes, of course, it a good for the planet because more tree means rain, which makes the environment clean , the temperature will be down. And the big advantage is, it will save the ozone layer

I agree with you, planting trees helps the planet to regenerate.

One good way to save the planet would be for every tree that is getting destroyed in fires, or used for construction, a new tree would need to be planted again.

We should look after our planet more and try to leave it in a better place for our children.
