Tree Planting Benefit Depends on Location

Only tropical rain forests are strongly beneficial in helping slow down global warming, according to researchers from Stanford University and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, San Jose Mercury News reports.

While the study suggests it is more important than previously recognized to preserve and restore tropical forests, trees in snowy regions may actually increase local warming, the researchers said.

According to the article, tree planting efforts to increase the forested areas in northern regions may be ineffective.

Tree planting projects to offset carbon emissions have been rejected by many environmentalists.

One thought on “Tree Planting Benefit Depends on Location

  1. Really! Who can you believe? It is very discouraging to get opposing views from so called experts which can leave you no more informed than before. No wonder we have so many problems that go unresolved.

    As to this one, I find it hard to believe planting trees can result in anything bad. Trees certainly add to the beauty of individual property and a community. Besides the favorable relationship between trees and people, I know I would prefer a tree lined street to live on, to stand under a shade tree out of the blazing sun which is harmful to the skin, and want to be buried in a plot with large trees of any kind nearby.
