Forest Restoration 101

C3 Solutions outlines the importance of forest restoration.

The C3 Take
  • Trees provide essential environmental benefits, including improved air and water quality.
  • Trees are one of the most effective natural carbon sequestration tools.
  • The private sector has been effective in implementing forest restoration efforts, but sometimes government policy gets in the way.
  • By reducing red tape and encouraging private sector involvement, the United States can continue to be a shining example of forest conservation worldwide.

“When people think of natural climate solutions, they usually think of forests and trees, and that makes sense. Trees sequester enormous amounts of carbon dioxide. They lower greenhouse gas emissions, improve our air quality, and even enhance mental well-being.”
