Mail & Guardian: The trouble with indiscriminate tree-planting in Africa

"The idea that the world needs to plant more trees is not controversial. Trees suck carbon out of the atmosphere, storing it in the earth instead. So if we plant enough new forests — these would need to cover as much as one-third of all the land in the world, some estimates suggest — we should be able to prevent the planet from becoming any hotter."
