Three “supertrees” can help protect against climate collapse

Vox.com had an interesting story map last week on three important tree species that provide a hedge against catastrophic climate change across the world. They are the brazil nut tree from the Amazon rain forest, the stilt mangrove from Indonesia, and the African teak tree in the Congo rain forest.  You can look at the interesting graphics and fascinating information about why these tree species are so important here.
