Afforestation

Afforestation is the establishment of a forest or stand of trees (forestation) in an area where there was no previous tree cover.Many government and non-governmental organizations directly engage in afforestation programs to create forests and increase carbon capture. Sometimes special tools, such as a tree planting bar, are used to make planting of trees easier and faster.The rate of net forest loss decreased substantially over the period 1990–2020 due to a reduction in deforestation in some countries, plus increases in forest area in others through afforestation and the natural expansion of forests.Afforestation can increase the soil quality and organic carbon …
