Trees absorb about 30% of the CO2 emissions that we humans emit. They are part of the complex recycling system of Planet Earth and they do not work alone.
In this short animation from TED-Ed, animator Avi Ofer and University of British Columbia student Camille Defrenne explain how the interaction and architecture of root systems relate to forest dynamics, CO2 sequestration, and climate change [spoiler: fungi does a lot of talking].
After you watch, share with a friend. And keep the conversation going.
