The Menominee tribe of Wisconsin has sustainably harvested its woods for nearly 170 years, providing a model for foresters worldwide. Amid climate change and other threats to the forest, the tribe continues to follow a traditional code: Let the healthy trees keep growing.
These include nine forest areas in Latin America, eight in Africa, and seven in Asia and Oceania.
What's more, Pakistan is among the six countries that will be most affected by climate change, meaning that reforestation is critical to mitigate the impacts of global warming.
That amounts to 40 football fields worth of trees cut every minute of last year in a devastating blow to biodiversity and the global climate.
