Climate Action through Tree Growing
Trees play a crucial role in mitigating climate change. Tree planting can be done by anyone in any part of the world at any given time.
However, tree planting is not enough; we emphasize on tree growing. In this content, tree growing involves nurturing until maturing while increasing the quantity.
Trees act as carbon sinks, hence playing a crucial purpose in reducing the number of carbon emissions in the atmosphere.
Besides, trees act as windbreaks and reduce the speed of water runoff lowering the magnitude of damage caused by floods. Trees hold the soil firmly, lessening the chances of landslides.
In this regard, Enviro Wild hosted an online discussion, the guest speaker being Patricia Kombo, founder of Patree Initiative, to share her thoughts- she has been actively advocating for increased forest cover in Kenya.
