I love both the technology behind this AND the big thinking that said, "This is gonna take forever!" and changed up the method instead of scaling back the target. 😍 The Thai government (I live in Chiang Mai in the North) also tackles reforestation by seeding large areas with light aircraft.
This tree planing target seems soooo huge and yet it is literally only a drop in the bucket of what's needed.
Would be fascinating to come back in 10 years and see how many of the 20 MIL survived - and thrived - and how that informs planting for the future.
