Forests are being replanted
Around 52,000 square kilometers of forests are re-planted every year. This is less than half of what is being cut down or burned in a year. At current pace, the disappearing of forests on the planet continues at an alarming rate.

There is hope !
Yet, the trend of disappearing forests can be reversed! Data suggests that replanting- and reforestation projects could do it within 30 years.
