An accomplished science and nature writer takes on a ubiquitous topic: tree canopy. This was a thorough and well-researched story on what our global forests have been through, how they are recovering from various attempts at clearcutting to use the land for something else, and where humans should (and shouldn't!) intervene to help that recovery along. This would be a good title for the lover of nature in your life, as it gives a relatable message of why we should care about the state of the Earth's tree cover, and how we can actually help it.… (lisätietoja)

A Trillion Trees is a look into how trusting nature might be the solution to reforesting to aide with the battle against climate change, restore ecosystems, and halt species extinction. Library Thing Early Reviewers provided an Advance Reader Copy in exchange for a review. By now (August 2023) some of the information may be outdated, however, it is a remarkable snapshot of this planet's forests. Pearce's voice and experience combine to create a consistent narrative flow through the work. He shows repeatedly how humankind has created this situation and how nature will persevere. There isn't a clear check list for the best-path forward through the woods, various forests show how they are taking charge and growing.… (lisätietoja)

A Trillion Trees is a very extensive study of trees all over the world. We may all have heard about the beneficial effect of trees and forests, but do we really know the facts of what is being done. The author, Fred Pearce, has been all over the world studying how different countries deal with their trees, and he shares his knowledge in detailed stories of all the various places he has been. There are success stories and some not so successful. But Pearce maintains optimism throughout, displaying an implicit trust in how human beings are tackling the problem. A very instructive and valuable book for anyone interested in the environment.… (lisätietoja)
