Trees can be useful in fighting climate change, both for mitigation by sequestering carbon, and also for adaption by providing shade and improving air quality. Schemes that plant and maintain forests can also create jobs in the local community.

It takes a lot of trees to however to offset just one tonne of carbon, so space is needed to make a drastic impact. The following organisations can help:

Trees for Cities

Trees for Life

Woodland Trust
