Urban forests: challenges and benefits

According to the IPCC, 70% of global greenhouse gas emissions come from urban areas. With pollution, artificialization, heat waves and shrinking biodiversity, cities have become the symptom of a world that is running out of steam, reflecting development that is disconnected from the living world. While more than half of the world's population live in cities, it is becoming urgent to rethink urban planning, to (re)integrate plants, to recreate a natural balance. Therefore, the urban forest represents a tremendous opportunity to go beyond our conception of today's city to build the city of tomorrow.

Assisted Natural Regeneration, a complementary solution to tree planting to restore degraded forests

Assisted Natural Regeneration (ANR) is a complementary solution to tree planting. This solution consists of a soft forest management method that preserves and strengthens existing forests through forest maintenance work that respects and mimics the natural reproduction cycle of trees. This method favors the progressive regeneration of the forest and thus the preservation of biodiversity and the carbon storage function of the soil throughout the process. Within a degraded forest plot that needs to be restored, how is the choice of silvicultural itinerary made between planting, ANR or a combination of these two solutions? In concrete terms, what does ANR work consist of? Why is ANR becoming more and more popular? These are some of the questions that Reforest'Action, an expert in forest restoration around the world, can answer.

What is a forest garden?

Forest gardens, or garden forests, are ecosystems based on a permaculture approach to food production. They thrive on the synergies achieved by the diversity of species planted.

All you need to know about hedgerows: definition, composition, regulations and cost

The hedgerows began to disappear from the French farming landscape in the 1970s. This was a time when many farmers were forced to increase yields if their holdings were to survive. We have since become aware of how important and useful hedgerows are on many levels, and they are now starting to reappear in our countryside.

Protect and restore the world's forests, two urgent and complementary actions

Although forests provide us with invaluable services every day, they are still affected by deforestation at a pace of 10 million hectares deforested each year. Collective action to protect and restore forests is more urgent than ever. These actions, closely complementary and both urgently needed, will together provide a significant part of the global response to the climate and biodiversity crisis.
