Trees are essential, for nature and for us. Yet we are cutting and burning them at such a rate that we are fast approaching a tipping point, beyond which life on this planet will be compromised, irreparably. But there is still hope. If we had a trillion more trees, the damage could be undone.

Combining cutting-edge scientific research with vivid travel writing, Fred Pearce shows how we achieve this. Challenging received wisdom about the need for planting, he explains why the best strategy is to stand back, stop the destruction and let nature - and those who dwell in the forests - do the rest.

Lucid, revelatory and often surprising, A Trillion Trees is an environmental call to arms, and a celebration of our planet's vast arboreal riches.
