An international group of experts, led by the University of Granada (UGR), has signalled the need for carefully planned reforestation on a worldwide scale—and not simply in terms of planting as many trees as possible but, rather, planting specific species that can help curb the propagation of wildfires and that are able to re-sprout following fire damage. The experts have shared their views in an open Letter published in Science, one of the world’s most prestigious journals dealing with scientific matters.
