Deforestation

deforestedland clearingforest clearing
Reforestation is the natural or intentional restocking of existing forests and woodlands (forestation) that have been depleted, usually through deforestation. A similar concept, afforestation, another type of forestation, refers to the process of restoring and recreating areas of woodlands or forests that may have existed long ago but were deforested or otherwise removed at some point in the past or lacked it naturally (e.g., natural grasslands).
The removal of trees without sufficient reforestation has resulted in habitat damage, biodiversity loss, and aridity.

Biosequestration

biologicalsequester
Reforestation can be used to rectify or improve the quality of human life by soaking up pollution and dust from the air, rebuild natural habitats and ecosystems, mitigate global warming since forests facilitate biosequestration of atmospheric carbon dioxide, and harvest for resources, particularly timber, but also non-timber forest products.
Candell and Raupach argue that there are four primary ways in which reforestation and reducing deforestation can increase biosequestration.

Tree planting

tree-plantingplantedtreeplanting
The wood products industry systematically replaces many of the trees it cuts, employing large numbers of summer workers for tree planting work.
In silviculture the activity is known as reforestation, or afforestation, depending on whether the area being planted has or has not recently been forested.

Carbon sink

carbon dioxide sinksinkssink
By removing this greenhouse gas from the air, forests function as terrestrial carbon sinks, meaning they store large amounts of carbon.
In the Clean Development Mechanism, only afforestation and reforestation are eligible to produce certified emission reductions (CERs) in the first commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol (2008–2012).

Forestation

Reforestation is the natural or intentional restocking of existing forests and woodlands (forestation) that have been depleted, usually through deforestation.
In the first case, the process is called reforestation, while the second is called afforestation.

Tree planting bar

Special tools, e.g. tree planting bars, are used to make planting of trees easier and faster.
A tree planting bar or dibble bar is a tool used by foresters to plant trees, especially in large-scale afforestation or reforestation.

Global warming

climate changeglobal climate changeanthropogenic climate change
Reforestation can be used to rectify or improve the quality of human life by soaking up pollution and dust from the air, rebuild natural habitats and ecosystems, mitigate global warming since forests facilitate biosequestration of atmospheric carbon dioxide, and harvest for resources, particularly timber, but also non-timber forest products. Therefore, an increase in the overall forest cover around the world would tend to mitigate global warming.
There is a large potential for future reductions in emissions by a combination of activities, including energy conservation and increased energy efficiency; the use of low-carbon energy technologies, such as renewable energy, nuclear energy, and carbon capture and storage; and enhancing carbon sinks through, for example, reforestation and preventing deforestation.

Afforestation

A similar concept, afforestation, another type of forestation, refers to the process of restoring and recreating areas of woodlands or forests that may have existed long ago but were deforested or otherwise removed at some point in the past or lacked it naturally (e.g., natural grasslands).
The use of afforestation as strategy of conservation of forest biomes is seen as a menace to the conservation of natural grassland and savanna biomes, as the ideal would be the reforestation of areas where forest occurs naturally.

Biodiversity

A debated issue in managed reforestation is whether or not the succeeding forest will have the same biodiversity as the original forest.
1) An extensive reforestation/afforestation programme should be followed.

Desertification

For example, in China, the Jane Goodall Institute, through their Shanghai Roots & Shoots division, launched the Million Tree Project in Kulun Qi, Inner Mongolia to plant one million trees to stop desertification and help curb climate change.
Reforestation gets at one of the root causes of desertification and is not just a treatment of the symptoms.

Forest cover

Therefore, an increase in the overall forest cover around the world would tend to mitigate global warming.
Forest cover can be increased by reforestation and afforestation efforts, but loss of old-growth forests is irreversibel in terms of its ecological services.

Ecosia

Ecosia is a non-profit organisation based in Berlin, Germany that has planted over 40 million trees worldwide as of november 2018.
Ecosia is an Internet search engine based in Berlin, Germany, that plants trees by donating at least 80% of its surplus income to non-profit organizations that focus on reforestation and conservationism.

Forest restoration
Forest restoration is a specialized form of reforestation, but it differs from conventional tree plantations in that its primary goals are biodiversity recovery and environmental protection.

Some of these trees are already being developed in the lumber and biofuel industries.
Workers within Forest Nurseries and Gathering of Forest Products are tasked with growing trees for reforestation and gathering products such as rhizomes and barks.

Restoration ecology

Restoration ecology
Ecological restoration includes a wide scope of projects including erosion control, reforestation, removal of non-native species and weeds, revegetation of disturbed areas, daylighting streams, reintroduction of native species (preferably native species that have local adaptation), and habitat and range improvement for targeted species.

Cedrus libani

For thousands of years, Lebanon was covered by forests, one particular species of interest, Cedrus libani was exceptionally valuable and was almost eliminated due to lumbering operations for such purposes as the construction of King Solomon’s great temple and palace.
Extensive reforestation of cedar is carried out in the Mediterranean region.

Climate change in Turkey

This could help limit climate change in Turkey.
Reforestation and changes in land use may offset 10% to 15% of fossil fuel emissions, but this estimate is highly uncertain as warmer and dryer air in the south and west may make it difficult to sustain the present forest cover.
