Go to https://teamtrees.org and lets get some trees planted! #teamtrees
I started off making this nice video about how Japan got its forests back through afforestation. Then I did too much researching on the Internet and came to the conclusion that Japan should be chopping down some of its trees. Trust me, it'll all make sense once you watch the video... I hope.
