New study by Indiana University proves that reforestation efforts lead to cooling in atmosphere temperature

While it is widely known that trees are a great way to capture CO2 in the atmosphere, it is more rare to find studies directly linking the amount of trees in a region of the world to the outside temperature. This is what this study from Indiana University is now proving, showing a direct relation between the reforestation efforts in the South-East of the US and overall temperature in the region:

      Planting trees is a win-win: combats climate change & benefits local environments. Let's see more large-scale reforestation projects around the world!

        This finding highlights the important role of restoring forests in mitigating climate change and promoting a more sustainable environment. We should all join hands in planting trees for our greater future.

          Trees and other plants help cool the environment, making vegetation a simple and effective way to reduce urban heat islands. Reforestation should therefore be embraced globally.

            The emissions that are captured by trees(CO2) have a huge impact on the temperatures. Green house gases in the atmosphere do indeed lead to warmer temperatures in the planet, so when some are eliminated through reforestation efforts, it's only logical that the heat that would have been generated by them also is neutralised.

              This is the way...we should ensure that we protect our forests so as to reduce the earth temperatures that cause grave danger in the planet.

                The direct correlation between tree cover and regional temperature is a compelling revelation. Its important we invest in reforestation initiatives as a practical solution to combat rising temperatures and the broader climate crisis
