Producer Bronwyn Wilde spoke to Don Carson from Forest Owners Association. This interview arose out of an earlier interview last month with a representative from 50 Shades of Green - a group of farmers who are concerned about the Billion Trees program encouraging investors to buy up prime farmland in order to plant trees and reap the carbon credits.  The main takeaway from that initial interview was that 50 Shades of Green wanted those billion trees to be native, and planted on marginal land. 

Don Carson heard this interview and got in contact to defend pines and forestry as the solution to sequester our carbon in the short term, and supply jobs for farmers who will be forced to change their lifestyles.  

He began by telling us what he sees as the weaknesses of the 50 Shades of Green campaign.
