Simple solutions for creating more nature, Trees and natural ecosystems
Solution 1: Address planting locations
The start is to address planting locations where people are allowed to plant nature. Land owners like local governments can address locations where nature can be developed. By communicating the locations and guidelines the process should get started automatically.
A: Community gardens
people can grow edible gardens with fruit trees, berry bushes and more.
B: Maintenance free planting locations
By addressing locations where people can plant durable trees or bushes maintenance costs can drop significantly. Nature heals itself and needs no maintenance in the first place.
Solution 2: Start to grow and plant trees yourself: Using small upcoming trees or seeds
You can easily grow trees from planting the seeds or get small trees that otherwise don't have chance. This is free and easy exercise.
Just put a number seeds or little young trees in a pot and see if it grows. When the tree is strong enough you can use it for plantation in a life supportive environment. Yes, when its small it is still flexible enough to grow without the need of support.
This is the start of your own plantation and treeplanting life-cycle.
Or you can just put a seed in the ground.
Solution 3: selective mowing saving costs & the bees
Grass mowers destroy a lot of natural upcoming vegetation. Local governments can save money by mowing selectively for example only mowing the area's next to walking paths instead of the whole area, Leaving it un-touched for the season.
This stimulates natural growth of flowers and other blossoming vegetation to support insects like bees and bumblebee's. At the end of the season these area's can be mowed to keep it clean from trees if this is the wanted result.
Solution 4: Leaving nature untouched (permanently)
This is the best option to 'create' nature. Just leaving land untouched and let nature handle itself. This is cheap, and great area's with a lot of bio diversity can grow by itself.
Or, to stimulate the growth, humans can use this area's to plant vegetation for a while. until it is 'fully booked'
