How does reforestation done wrong increase greenhouse gasses?
I get that randomly planted trees disrupt the existing established ecosystem, especially if theyre not native trees. But I never heard about the increase of carbon dioxide that way.

I understand and while I of course agree with you on all of those points, they rely on planting trees in very specific spots and conditions, draining swamps, near the arctic, in savannahs.
Im sure your understanding of the topic is far greater than mine, but it seems rather unlikely to me that such a number of trees is planted in these specific circumstances and areas to have a considerable impact on co2 increase.

I know drying swamps is a very common thing. Just not in the context of planting trees to combat co2 levels.
