    There are more than 3 trillion trees in the world – seven times the amount that had been previously estimated based largely on (imperfect) satellite imagery, they wrote in a new study in Nature. That’s the good news.

    This is from your article

    Excerpt:
    we estimate that over 15 billion trees are cut down each year, and the global number of trees hasfallen by approximately 46% since the start of human civilization.

    Mr V is correct. There are more trees today than there 35 years ago. In the US, there are more trees today than there were in 1900.

    Did anyone bother to point out that modern humans did not exist 250,000 years ago, let alone millions?

    How about:

    "More CO2 is fantastic for plant growth, you should see my geraniums"?

    I read Mr V's article, it said that the bigger trees capture much more carbon. In the early 1900's we chopped down so many trees. The trees we have now are much smaller in size and capture much less carbon in comparison. And just because we might have more trees than we did 100 years ago, does not counter the argument that trees are dying right now all over the world. Also if there are more trees than 100 years ago, that says nothing. There are about 50% lees trees since the start of human civilization. Also the trees that we have today on mass scale are due to environmental protections and those seeking to restore the earth. Many nations are planting millions and millions of trees working to combat climate change as we speak. But as I said those trees are small, and will not capture CO2 the same way that the trees of old once did. We used to have massive trees. Not many of us could even imagine what a tree like that would look like today. They are lost to us.

    Then there is this article, here is the link https://www.tentree.com/blogs/posts/...-100-years-ago

    Excerpt:
    However great the news is that we’re adding trees back in the United States, there are still serious concerns about world-wide tree harvests. We have chopped the total number of trees in half since the advent of humans on our surface.Today, annual tree harvest vs. production on a world-wide scale shows that humans cut down approximately 15 billion trees a year and re-plant about 5 billion.That’s a net loss of 10 billion trees every year, and a rate that would mean the loss of all trees within the next 300 years. That sounds like a long time, but your great-great-great-grandchildren may not have the same perspective as you do on that topic.

    We cant even barley imagine how big trees used to be. Some were as big around as a house. What we have now are just saplings in comparrison. These are cedars.

    First of all, we're not going back to being hunter gatherers. No one in their right mind wants that sort of regression. It's just plain nuts to be honest. It's also something that alienates a lot of people who are otherwise sympathetic on conservation related issues.

    Deforestation has been largely reversed in the developed world. Our forests are doing well. The reality is that much attention had been paid to this issue and for a very long time. We have made progress.

    Unless your house is totally fire resistant, you should have a very wide berm around it if you are in a wooded area. You should consider installing sprinklers on your roof an make sure that there is no shrubbery close to your house.
