Trees produce many different kinds of essential and useful materials. They protect the soil against accelerated erosion and loss of fertility, and help to provide the conditions needed for sustainable farming. Trees are therefore important to social, economic and environmental welfare. Yet trees continue to disappear faster than they are replaced. There are many reasons for this failure to replant trees, including: problems with seed supply lack of finance and training, bureaucracy; natural disasters; and misinformation.
