Rural development and trees can coexist
In the last few decades, deforestation has become a huge problem in Nigeria. The timber industry, agriculture, and rapid urbanization have brought ecosystems to the point of collapse. To counter this trend, we're planting trees on and around farms. This doesn't just bring forests back. It also improves young people's incomes, protects farms against the effects of climate change, and stimulates biodiversity. It turns out that trees and rural development can go hand-in-hand.
