There's something reassuring about the wild immensity of Canada's Great North Woods
There definitely is no shortage of trees here. Our prime minister promised in 2015 to have two billion trees planted in order to fight global warming/climate change. He got ridiculed because a tiny fraction of those trees are planted. The promise gets ridiculed because people think we have enough trees (one can never have enough, especially in the city).

In my city, we have a problem with the emerald ash borer. My street has a number of them. They've all been chopped down, with very few replacements planted. After the derecho touched down in May, a rather large number of mature trees came tumbling down. We spend so much time cleaning up and recovering from those events, that we forget or don't have the time to plant new trees. It's a shame.
