• I've planted dozens of trees, either seeds into pots to be transplanted later or transplanting from pot into forest. I've done this in Michigan (northern Macomb county, as well as in the forested area just outside of my University campus), Indiana (honestly, not sure where, exactly - somewhere north of Indianapolis), and in several locations in Vermont. Does it make any difference, in terms of deforestation? Probably not, but I like trees, and it's a good activity to get out and connect with the outdoors for a short time.

      Some town offer to plant trees free of charge where they can also provide shade to passers-by. Would you believe some homeowners turn them down?
