Trees are an asset that we can’t afford not to use if we want to maintain a livable climate. According to The Nature Conservancy, nature-based climate solutions could account for 37 percent of necessary reductions, with forests, specifically, making the heaviest lifts to remove carbon from the atmosphere.
