Reforestation

Forest Gardening

Yesterday’s USA Today included a very interesting little item on reforestation plans – plans which could lead to the planting of 18 million acres of new trees pursuant to a “bill passed by the US House of Representatives in June.” (Compare this, however, to the 26 million acres of forests to be lost to development by 2050, according to the US Forest Service’s Ralph Alig, in the absence of any legislation or other initiatives.) Unfortunately, despite a variety of extraneous links, the article, Climate Plan Calls for Forest Expansion, does not link to the EPA analysis which it uses as the basis for its reporting, or the specific bill analyzed. I have yet to track either down with confidence. If and when I do, I’ll let you know.
