It seems like we are growing many roads with a tree here and there and
calling that a forest. What is the solution? Close most of the roads! One
of the biggest parks in Europe is doing just that! So it can be done. It

pathways of water, allow grass to compete with trees, and disrupt the
mycorrhizae and other tree associates. And when trees get sick, all the
associates of trees also get sick. Ask a koala!
