Podcast: New Trees on Old Soil

Listen to the Danish Podcast by Vid & Sans, where Jens-Christian Svenning explains why conserving old forests is better than planting new trees.

It has become increasingly popular to plant trees as a response to climate change. Companies branding themselves on being environmentally conscious will even offer to plant a tree for each of their products you buy. But is this necessarily a good thing? In the podcast episode, “New trees on old soil” by Vid & Sans, Jens-Christian gives his take on why planting new forest is not as good for biodiversity as it would seem.
