How can we save our dying forests?

Climate change and severe droughts have weakened forests around the globe. In Germany, where many forests are planted monocultures, about 80% of trees are considered unhealthy. What's even more alarming is that the forest dieback is also affecting younger trees now. So what happens if we lose our forests? And is there anything we can do to stop it?

Interviewee featured in this episode: 

Somidh Saha, Senior scientist at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, head of research group: "Sylvanus – Increasing resilience and reducing trade-offs during forest transformation"
