Plain Language Summary
The 2 Billion Trees (2BT) program offers a unique opportunity to reduce net greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions while simultaneously ensuring co-benefits to water quality and aquatic ecosystem health. The success of the 2BT program in achieving co-benefits depends on planting the right trees in the right places.
