PSYCHOLOGY

Are you clear in your mind about how we humans fit into local and global ecosystems? Do you compute that tree numbers and tree health are high up in the existential WAR being fought on the planet? How vital trees are to your existence?. (People can be wilfully blind about such things). Are you as a living being able to clear away the noise and early indoctrination?

MORE SUBJECTS/TOPICS

Forests - City Trees - Tree care in a built environment - Orchards - Garden trees ~ Commercial plantations and Agroforestry - Green islands. Protected areas that can be systematically interconnected. ~ Preventing droughts and famines by afforestation e.g. Could the tragedy in Syria have been made more difficult to bring about - Linear Orchards in hedgerows. also bordering walkways. Healthy forest floors are critical to the health of trees.


Authority or permission is the first requirement.

Who is your local tree champion? Is there one in your area? Could you become a local node in a network? Do you want to be a helper?

There are several databases that need to  be populated, Treezilla is one,

Databases that include pro-tree people?desired then a planter/tender/guardian can have an entry with optional details

Plantations Planting

Orchards

Hedgerows

Protection

Enemies and action

Sheep grazing kills the seedlings. Action - Protection:- Education is needed.  Use of the law should, IMHO be the second option, Sheep owners to be held responsible for seedling damage.
Deer ditto
State and commercial forestry They deplete the fertility of the land and introduce alien species. Action - Lobbying government
Estate ownership for game  production, Law forcing tree planting where possible.
Agriculture - Farmers ... Action  - Hedgerow tree planting  - Larger farms to allocate land for tree planting - Protecting wildwood  from agroferestry takeover.
