The value of a tree

Driving through Rousillac in south Trinidad, you’d come upon a dirt road that veers off the main toward the forest and NGC’s Right of Way. There,
a stripe of trees appears to have been sheared off the landscape, leaving a close-cropped carpet of green flanked by forest on either side.

Deforestation and forest degradation account for approximately 17 percent of global carbon emissions, more than the entire global transportation sector and second only to the energy sector.
