Tree-Planting Update: Episode 40



Mélissa is a Tree Planting Officer at Ecosia. She likes monitoring trees' growth.

In many of the places we work there is a dry season and a rainy season. This means you usually only have one shot each year to get the trees in the ground and growing in order for them to survive.

The latest climate reports say that we have until 2050 to stop the worst consequences of climate change. That leaves us 27 rainy seasons to do things right.

Tree Update 40 looks into why most tree-planting pledges are not effective, which type of restoration projects are worthy of your support and why Ecosia’s “ABC of Tree Planting” might just be the blueprint the world of restoration needs to make the most of the remaining 27 rainy seasons.

Join me and Pieter on a trip through Senegal, a country with one of the fastest rates of desertification and where our partner, Hommes et Terre, grows trees in the most difficult climatic conditions.
