Inconvenient forest stats:
Forests still cover about 30 percent of the world’s land surface, but they are disappearing at an alarming rate. Between 1990 and 2016, the world lost 502,000 square miles (1.3 million square kilometers) of forest, according to the World Bank—an area larger than South Africa. Since humans started cutting down forests, 46 percent of trees have been felled, according to a 2015 study in the journal Nature. Per National Geographic about 17 percent of the Amazonian rainforest has been destroyed over the past 50 years, and losses recently have been on the rise.
The Earth loses 18.7 million acres of forests per year, which is equal to 27 soccer fields every minute, according to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).
It is estimated that 15 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions come from deforestation, according to the WWF.
At the beginning we are planning to plant trees in my village, as it will be easier way to take care of them and reduce costs, so we could plant the most trees as we can.
Our big dream is to operate on the places the most suffering from deforestation, expand the forest area to rebuilt the wildlife diversity around the world.
