Australia has set an ambitious target to plant 1 billion trees by 2050 in an effort to fight climate change, enhance natural landscapes, and boost the nation’s overall economic prosperity.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced the scheme, part of a new National Forest Industries Plan, will remove 18 million tons of greenhouse gases from the environment each year between now and 2030 and, in turn, allow Australia to meet its Paris climate agreement targets.

“Australia’s forest industries are part of the solution to climate change,” Morrison announced in a statement. “I’m interested in growing more trees and growing more jobs — it’s as simple as that.”
