Argument: Aerial reforestation cuts costs of reforestation

Issue Report: Reforestation as a solution to global warming


Matthew McDermott. “Can Aerial Reforestation Help Slow Climate Change?”. Tree Hugger. 22 Aug. 2008 – “Thousand Of Seed-Containing Bomblets Dropped to Reforest Mangrove Forest Since it’s too labor intensive and too slow to reforest large areas of land by hand, foot, shovel and trowel, why not try to use aircraft to drop thousands of small bomblets containing a tree seed (in the experiment in the show, mangrove seeds) and some soil over deforested areas? It would be much quicker than manual reforestation and the principle could be applied to pretty much any type of forest in the world.”
