About replanted forests

The good news is that new forests are being planted. The bad news is that it is not nearly enough to make up for the forests that are being cut down - forestation and deforestation are not in balance.

Top 4 facts about replanted forests

1

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.

But it’s not enough

The good thing is that the speed at which our forests disappear is slowing. But it's still disappearing! The growing population will add to the challenge of conserving our planet's forests.

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.

Reversing the trend also put demands on us. We must start asking questions about how the things we buy; from furniture and toilet paper to cosmetics and beef, and pick those that are forest-friendly.



Replanted forests

Reforestation is the restocking of existing forests and woodlands which have been depleted. Reforestation can be used to improve the quality of human life by soaking up pollution and dust from the air, rebuild natural habitats and ecosystems, mitigate global warming since forests facilitate biosequestration of atmospheric carbon dioxide, and harvest for resources, particularly timber. The term reforestation is similar to afforestation, the process of restoring and recreating areas of woodlands or forests that may have existed long ago but were deforested or otherwise removed at some point in the past.
