New
Rules
 
for
Tree
Planting
Scientists
have proposed
10
golden
rules
 
for
tree-planting.
 
The
rules
 
must
be
 
a
top
priority
 
 
for
all
nations
this
decade.
 
Tree
planting
is
 
a
brilliant
solution
 
to
deal with
climate
change
 
and
protect
biodiversity.
 
The
rules
include,
protecting
existing
forests
first
 
 
and
involving
locals.
Forests
provide
 
a
home
to
three-quarters
 
 
of
 
the
world's
plants
 
and
animals,
 
soak
 
up
carbon dioxide,
 
and
provide
food,
 
fuels
 
and
medicines,
 
but
they
are
fast
disappearing.
