to newspapers pledging to plant trees, everyone’s at it. Piers, Dom and I discuss the climate science behind such targets in the latest issue of Woodwise from The Woodland Trust. In particular, we look at how we use science to relate the international need to limit global warming, to the UK 2050 net-zero emissions target that includes strong UK action on woodland creation.
