What is Reforestation?

Reforestation is helping to bring forestation to areas where forests have been destroyed. Around the world countries have pledged to bring back 350 million hectares into restoration by 2030.

“When most people think of reforestation they often think of massive tree planting efforts but really the fastest and cheapest way of restoring forests is by encouraging natural regeneration.” says Nikola Alexandre, Conservation International Restoration Fellow  

Natural Regeneration occurs in areas where dormant seeds that will be dispersed by nearby forests start to regrow naturally without human intervention. This method produces the greatest diversity of tree species. Learn more about reforestation in the below video by our partner Conservation International.
