US launches $1bn tree-planting scheme to mitigate effects of climate crisis

Hundreds of communities around the US will share more than $1bn in federal money to help them plant and maintain trees under a federal program that is intended to reduce extreme heat, benefit health and improve access to nature.
The US agriculture secretary, Tom Vilsack, will announce the $1.13bn in funding for 385 projects at an event on Thursday morning in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
The tree planting efforts will be focused on marginalized areas in all 50 states as well as Washington DC, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and some tribal nations.
