I'm sure you've heard all about the deforestation of the planet in general, well I came up with a crazy idea the other day to help reverse this.

Just rent a small plane and fly up and down the country throwing handfuls of seeds out of the window LOL. I know it's not very practical but it was just a quick thought that gave me a good chuckle

I thought the same.

Unwanted seedlings will simply be removed anyway, so it's a pretty pointless exercise.

There are no trees because they have been cut down to put other stuff there!

Where there are no roads or cities, there probably already will be trees there.

If I get seed in my eye, you're in trouble.

Ah well, if it's the other eye, then things will be ok.

I know someone who probably breaks trespass laws by planting trees along a certain road-side.

It might not be the most practical, but I think it's a lovely idea.

Our air corridors? Try explaining that to the birds

Would be nice if we could live in harmony with nature and not punch it in the face everyday
