Reduction in Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+)

Many stakeholders are concerned with the status of global forests and the effects of deforestation
and forest degradation, for several reasons. Forests store the greatest amount of terrestrial carbon
on Earth and play a significant part in the global carbon cycle. When forests are disturbed
through forest clearing, weather events (e.g., hurricanes, droughts), and wildfires, they release
carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere, which can exacerbate climate change.

U.S. Forest Carbon Data

The fluxor flowof carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere is the dominant contributor to the observed warming trend in global temperatures.1Trees, however, store (sequester)CO2from the atmosphere, accruingsignificant stores of carbon over time. Trees also release some CO2back into the atmosphere(e.g., emissions). This process is known as the forest carbon cycle.

We plant trees for a better world. Help us children to save our future

It all started with a school presentation and today Plant-for-the-Planet is a global movement with an ambitious goal: to fight the climate crisis by planting trees around the world.

Ecosia – the search engine that plants trees

Ecosia is like any other search engine, with one major difference: we use our profits to plant trees.

Combined climate and carbon-cycle effects of large-scale deforestation

The prevention of deforestation and promotion of afforestation have often been cited as strategies to slow global warming. Deforestation releases CO2 to the atmosphere, which exerts a warming influence on Earth’s climate. However, biophysical effects of deforestation, which include changes in land surface albedo, evapotranspiration, and cloud cover also affect climate.

How Deforestation Affects Climate Change

The world loses more than 7,000 square meters of tree cover per second, according to the most recent year for which we have complete data.
