Quote
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?

And that's where tax money goes? To "scientific" who are against trees? I mean this guy must have a personal vendetta... like an allergies from tree pollen...

When the people of the world will get that covid was intentionally released to frame china, steal the election from trump, assure massive bail outs and foster the forced vaccination agendas...they will forget, like 911, wmds in irak, uss liberty or pedogate.

.. it aint just about plant tree's and walk away. its about know what tree's to plant, why and what for

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."

I mean, trees are 'good for the planet' but it's not as good as doing other things. If we were to transition to using more nuclear energy and less fossil fuels, that would be amazing for the planet.

Planting trees in bulk is just easy and cheap to do. People throwing $20 at some site that'll plant trees in areas is much easier then convincing them to make meaningful change in their life. But ya know, that's life, lol. Planting trees is pretty low hanging fruit compared to what can be done.

there are a lof trees around Tchernobyl... you can't cut them Smiley and if you burn them, they release cesium and other nice non atmosphere warming component.. soon too around fukushima, there will be many trees...

but you know they don't like to mention trees... otherwise they would have to talk about deforestation on a scale never seen before... look at russia, brazil, indonesia, central africa... cut > money > farm > money.

and then the deepness of the earth vegetal "crust" or layer is reduced... what they call canopy... a soy field is very small (height wise).

When the people of the world will get that covid was intentionally released to frame china, steal the election from trump, assure massive bail outs and foster the forced vaccination agendas...they will forget, like 911, wmds in irak, uss liberty or pedogate.

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.

As I've read recent news that some countries are experiencing flash floods, I can say that, planting trees will help at least lessen the situation of flash floods. So yes, it is good for the planet and may actually save lives if catastrophic events occur owed to denuded forests and the likes. We need to save forests before it is too late for the humanity.

Plating trees is always good for the nature and our health. There are countries when planting days are celebrated and everyone is encourage to plant one tree. It really surprised me seeing few comments from people that plating tree is not a healthy activity.
I think everyone should plant alteast one tree in his life.

Due to climate change and deforestation the country is suffering from heavy rains temperature fluctuations and storms. has been urged to plant more trees and increase forest cover. But due to our unawareness and lack of love for trees the number of trees in the country is declining. The storm is being damaged in the rain we have to save the tree for ourselves. All the responsibility of proper care and growth of the tree is ours. So it is very important for us to be aware of this. Trees are man's friends not slaves man and tree complement each other. So let's love the tree take care not only of planting trees but also of caring for and growing trees.

I agree with you, almost all countries are experiencing more extreme weather in the last 10 years. Saying that the climate is not changing is wrong. We can all help to fight the climate change right now, instead of waiting until its too late. Planting trees is a good solution to help the climate to recover to normal levels. In highly populated areas it might be difficult to find appropriate areas. But we could plant trees in very remote areas.

One more thing came to my mind, as OP has pointed that some areas might become colder. If the climate is really getting hotter due to global warming it shouldn't be a problem if trees would make it colder, am I right? Also, do we really need deserts? If some of them became a bit colder thanks too trees and possibly a bit more moist, it wouldn't be so bad, especially when we think of the entire globe. It might make deserts more habitable.

Might want to discuss that with our friends "down under," in Australia?

Planting trees is essential to the earth because the role or importance of trees to man cannot be over emphasized.
Man and animals needs plant to survive as they can be used for food, agriculture, timber, symbolic uses and art. In time of erosion the availability of trees help to control erosion and washing away of soil nutrients. Plants are used for making of ornaments for beautification. Plants are used for furniture making and basic domestic tools. It’s would be great ecologically friendly if we practice more of afforestation than deforestation.

Of course that planting trees is good for the planet and it is so obvious that there is no explaining it.

as far as I know, that's good, because the tree's job is to keep the heat from the sun...
try to pay attention to areas that have a few trees will definitely feel hot. planting more trees can prevent global warming which is getting worse every year, if the trees are cut down and not planted again, global warming will accelerate, thus making the ice in the north and south poles melt faster.

You do know, I hope, that deserts are complete ecosystems?

Here in the USA we have created pretty nice cities right in the middle of deserts. I can think of at least three examples, Palm Springs, Las Vegas, Tuscon.

IIRC it was the widespread use of air-conditioning in homes that made this possible.

....
and then the deepness of the earth vegetal "crust" or layer is reduced... what they call canopy... a soy field is very small (height wise).
I'm not sure about a precise definition of earth's "vegetal crust" but you are wrong there. For a tree, the woody parts are essentially dead tubes, except for the inner bark layer. The green at the top is what's of interest, and if one stripped that and weighed it, would it weight more or less than a soy field?

A great tree to grow indoor, is the lemon tree ! It provides yield Smiley.

When the people of the world will get that covid was intentionally released to frame china, steal the election from trump, assure massive bail outs and foster the forced vaccination agendas...they will forget, like 911, wmds in irak, uss liberty or pedogate.

YES! Or a little tree with both lime and lemon grafted on.

That's what's expected from the bitcoin world Smiley. Maybe add oranges too?

I'm not an expert in this, but I would expect limes and lemons to be very productive. An orange it seems would steal nutrients and water sufficient for a half dozen limes and lemons. Or if oranges, then something small from that family, like mandarins.

These trees are usually grafted one root system another top, so it's no big deal to get two or three or more different things on one root system.

As some users have pointed out, planting trees is good (no surprises there), however, it's going to take a lot more than just planting trees to mitigate and reverse some of the effects from climate change. Another user pointed out those trees depend on groundwater to grow and with droughts worsening as a consequence of climate change just planting trees alone will do no good for the planet. We need a combination of different strategies ranging from planting trees, building carbon sucking plants, cutting carbon emissions down to zero, and other forms of geoengineering and environmental action.

we chop too much, all the planting we do does not represent a fraction of what we chop
and thus animals go extinct
