China's approach to large-scale tree-planting cannot get us out of the climate crunch

Date : 11th March 2009, Source : The Guardian (UK)



As the climate heats up, so does the debate on what to do about forests. China, facing regional environmental challenges, such as dust storms and wood shortages is investing in large-scale reforestation. A huge swath of the country is covered with trees planted in recent decades to attempt to stabilise the land and provide resources. It is described as a "green wall", and China claims that the CO2 from the atmosphere as the trees grow is providing a global climate benefit, offsetting some emissions from the country's rapid economic growth.
