Forest Conservation and The Battle Against Climate Change

Deforestation is responsible for about 20 percent of the rise in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Forest conservation is a critical part of the solution to climate change, water conservation and overall sustainability. Reforestation also is an important part of the solution to global warming, climate change and resiliency.

Reforestation and Forest Conservation

  • Captures carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to help minimize global warming and climate change;
  • Preserves wildlife habitat and biodiversity;
  • Controls flooding by minimizing runoff and topsoil loss; and
  • Creates local jobs and sustainable economic opportunities.
