Saving Endemic Moroccan Fruit Tree Species

Context

The Project

Climate Solution

Tree plantations on degraded land

Degraded pasture and agricultural lands, or other lands corrupted from uses such as mining, are ripe for strategic planting of trees and perennial biomass. This can take a variety of forms—from seeding dense plots of diverse indigenous species to introducing a single exotic species as a plantation crop.

 

Fast-growing, dense plots of native species show that afforestation can draw down carbon, while supporting biodiversity, addressing human needs for firewood, food, and medicine, and providing ecosystem services such as flood and drought protection.
