  • #Climate #change may make #trees live fast and die young:) 🌱🌲💚 Everyone from #governments to oil #companies is looking at tree-planting as a way to counter global warming, but this strategy could be less effective than we thought. 
In a warming world with growing levels of carbon dioxide in the #atmosphere, researchers have hypothesised that trees will grow faster. But this isn’t necessarily a good thing. Faster-growing trees may live shorter lives, reducing the amount of time they lock carbon away for.

Now data is beginning to suggest that this is the case. Ulf Büntgen of the University of Cambridge and his colleagues have looked at tree ring records going back 2,000 years, and found that the longest-lived trees were those with the slowest growth rates.
