Plant trees, eat more food

Driving around farm areas, sometimes you notice the giant piles of wood chips and tree trunks, from torn down shelter belts that were destroyed in the name of “efficiency and progress.” University of Saskatchewan is helping farmers see how shortsighted this is, how much production they lose by removing trees, and that once we understand the actual financial value of carbon, how much income the farmers are giving up.

All of this potential with just random trees that the wind blew in. Imagine if the shelter belts were designed and planted with the most productive trees available for that context.

Eat the trees.
