Afforestation is the method of planting trees in an area where there are no trees. The process of forestation is the very opposite of deforestation. Forests are considered as the lungs of the earth as they help in purifying the air.
If we do not take steps to increase the forest cover of the world, we will end up suffocating. Forestation can be carried out in many ways. Trees can be grown in areas where forests have been destroyed.
To grow trees in places where there are no trees, the first step is to choose the right kind of trees.
The trees should be able to grow in the given area and should have a high survival rate. One can plant the trees by doing it themselves or can hire a professional.
