Trees have helped sustain life on earth, a delicate balance that is put at risk by deforestation. As we rush towards a tipping point, where woodland and forests can no longer thrive, Fred Pearce brings us a seed of hope. An additional trillion trees could help tilt the environmental scales back in our favour, but is planting them en masse the answer? In his inspiring new book, Fred Pearce takes us from illegal logging sites to the smouldering Amazon rainforest, showing how we can reforest our planet by taking a step back and giving nature room to breathe.
