#Deforestation: "#Consumption patterns of G7 countries drive an average loss of 3.9 #trees per person per year. Some of the hotspots of deforestation embodied in international trade are also #biodiversity hotspots"

"#USA, #Japan, #Germany, #France, the #UK, and Italy, and several developing countries, such as #China and #India, have obtained net domestic forest gains. The net forest gains made in these countries were partially offset by importing embodied deforestation from elsewhere"
"Our analysis addresses two main questions: (i) Which #deforestation hotspots are driven by which consumer countries? and (ii) Which forest ecosystems, tropical rain forests or other forest types are the top targets of global supply chains?"

The Christmas tree is one of the central elements in the whole story because it’s adorned with baubles that grant access to the free spins feature. First, Magic Baubles appear on the reels to activate up to three decorations on the #trees , and when their number
fxstat.com/en/user/profil… reaches at least eight, the party can begin. Up to 13 free spins can be awarded but the best part is that starting from 10 baubles, punters also get a multiplier of 2x for 10 and 11 spins and 3x for 12 and 13 spins.
webmail.onlineboxing.net/jforum/user/pr… In its turn, Rudie the Reindeer is in charge of creating better chances of triggering free spins because its appearance brings between 2 and 4 extra wilds, up to 3 positions on the Christmas tree, and a re-spin without losing the latter.

Thread/ #Wetlands may seem off-topic for an organisation based in #Africa's #drylands, but the protection & restoration of river ecosystems makes up a big part of our programmes at Tree Aid

2/When it does rain in the #Sahel, it often pours, leading to destructive flash floods, riverbank damage & #soilerosion. #Siltation is a major problem in the Sahel too, making rivers dry up quicker in the dry season, and flood faster in the rainy season too

#WorldWetlandsDay
3/ Our riverine projects work with local communities to restore & protect existing #trees along river banks, and adapt #farming methods to reduce siltation

Rivers & streams are a lifeline for these areas, and provide vital many services - read on to learn what we've been doing👇

"Gathered from an aged tree in the garden at Shandy Hall . . . 26 July 1845" Amazing relic from the sweet chestnut killed by lightning in 1911, but still here. Pressed by Rev. William Nichols in a copy of Sterne's works 1783. Thanks Edward Bayntun-Coward @YorksArboretum #trees
The tree is now covered by a Clematis montana.
A joke about a hot chestnut figures in Vol. 4 of Tristram Shandy, as you may recall.

1. Firefighters in California are in a desperate battle to defend giant sequoias

Like glaciers or coral reefs, it is another example where climate change threatens some of the most beautiful sights on our planet.

2. The changing climate changes the planet, including some of the most beautiful sights that you may see in your lives.

From the magnificent glaciers in the mountains to the coral reefs in the oceans, we destroy the most iconic examples of nature.

3. I remember how amazed I was in the 1990s when seeing some of these enormous trees in California.

Standing on the forest floor and looking up, they seemed to grow into infinity.

Happy 130th Birthday to us!

The TTFNC was founded on July 10th 1891 in order to: “...give pleasure to its members by observation of animal, insect and plant life in Trinidad”.

This thread will revisit some key milestones in our long history! 1/n #130yearsofTTFNC Image
In 1892, the first issue of our peer-reviewed journal was published as an outlet for our members to publish interesting and novel #NaturalHistory observations. It continues to this day as "Living World, the Journal of the TTFNC". ttfnc.org/livingworld/in… 2/n #130yearsofTTFNC Image
The first issue of our journal included J. E. Tanner's breakthrough discovery that #leafcutter #ants (locally known as #bachacs) cultivate fungus & feed it to their larvae, rather than eating the leaves directly as previously thought. 🐜🌿🍄3/n #130yearsofTTFNC ImageImage

Today’s walk was designed to avoid the BH crowds, and it paid off.

It was worth picking our way along a muddy track and crossing a stony dry stream bed.

We didn’t see anyone until we nearly got home.

Blissful!

The last time we walked up into these woods there was still ice on the ground.

Today the sun was winning against a cool breeze and the trees were coming into leaf.

Friday’s walk, with more than a hint of green on the wheat field.

I got caught off guard by a phone call from my GP half way round the top field, so this didn’t get posted.

The trees will be bursting into leaf soon. Oh joy!

We ventured a little way into the woods and found a fallen moss covered branch that would make a lovely bench to sit on.

We had a good look at this moss-covered trunk and got a bit tangled up in the process.

I’m glad I now know that the squeaky-wheel bird is a Great Tit.

I lost another ferrule off my hiking stick up on the hills today, but it was worth it!
The snow is still really thick and powdery and the sun was bright.

I wondered why Izzy was lagging behind instead of pushing on in front like she normally does.

Then I realised it was the depth of the snow. She was doing the sensible thing and following in my footsteps!

Once the snow got less deep Izzy was back out in front again with a waggy tail.

There’s no doubt about it, Izzy loves going on walks!

Challenge the lie that HS2 will destroy 108 woodlands. To support 500,000 UK jobs and deliver a low carbon, high capacity, better connected transformation of our railways, there are some upfront limited impacts. But let’s look at how limited they are:
1/14
England has 52,000 ancient woodland sites. 43 are affected by HS2 between London and Crewe, of which over 80% will remain intact.
2/14
If an ancient woodland is described as affected, in many cases this means a small section of it is affected. On Phase One, 32 are described as affected. Through careful design and environmental consideration less than 0.29 square kilometres of them will be lost.

To achieve our ambition of a 2% increase in #tree canopy cover across #Cambridge, we need businesses & residents to plant #trees on privately owned land to accompany the 2,000 trees being planted on @camcitco public land.

Here's a thread of how to plant, the Cambridge way:
Step 1 of 12: (If planting in grass) Cut away turf using spade
Step 2 of 12: Dig a pit to accommodate your new #tree, ensuring it is wide and deep enough for the bare roots or root ball of your tree

Took a wet walk through some first class WOOD PASTURE on the shore of #ullswater this morning. Here's a thread to explain why it's such a fantastic habitat, and why we need more of it. Image
On the face of it, wood pasture is just a field with trees in it, but it's so much more than this. When well managed, with the right level of grazing, wood pasture is one of the richest habitats we have. In fact, it's more than just one, it's a habitat mosaic. Image
One of the most prominent features of a wood pasture, is big, old #trees. This one has lots of oak, ash, birch, holly, sycamore, hawthorn and alder, many with abundant rot holes, perfect for pied flycatchers, restarts and other hole nesting #bird species. Image
