Yay, Earth Has More Trees! Why It's Bad News

There's a prevailing notion that Earth is losing all its trees.

However, a new study reveals that the overall percentage of trees on the planet has actually increased over a 35-year period by 7 percent.

While is this is good news on one level, it's bad news in other ways.

That's because while the amount of tree cover may have increased, Earth has lost a significant amount of tropical tree cover over that same period.

According to Mother Nature Network, the overall growth offsets the loss, but it's still a loss from the key environmental area of rainforests.

Also, the growth of trees in areas where they previously haven't grown is a further sign of serious climate change.

Warming in areas around the Arctic, like northeastern Siberia, western Alaska and northern Quebec has allowed for wood vegetation to grow where it previously hadn't.
