Podcast: Climate Now: Optimizing reforestation to mitigate climate change with Susan Cook-Patton

„Trees are an incredible resource for mitigating climate change, with myriad environmental benefits – not least their ability to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store it for hundreds to thousands of years. Reforestation – the process of replanting trees in depleted areas – should be included in the array of climate solutions, but it isn’t as simple as merely planting any tree anywhere. Dr. Susan Cook-Patton and her colleagues created the Reforestation Hub, which provides county-level information about the best regions and geographic areas to plant trees to maximize CO2 uptake via reforestation.“
