  • In May 2020, the European Commission published its biodiversity strategy.
  • Planting three billion additional trees across the EU by 2030 will increase the area of forest and tree coverage, increase the resilience of forests and their role in reversing biodiversity loss while mitigating climate change and helping adaptation to global warming.
  • Trees shouldn’t just be planted in forests, but also in rural and urban areas.
