Why are more trees needed?

Most companies and nations are concentrating on reducing carbon emissions.
While this is laudable, scientists warn us that it is actually too late for only this.
If we stopped our carbon emissions today, we would still exceed the 450 ppm limit to stay under 2°C temp increase: the excess carbon we produced in the last decades is stored in the oceans and released with a 30 year lag.
We collectively need to draw carbon from the atmosphere. And the best technology for this is trees and soil carbon. Moreover, in the tropics, where forests contribute to increasing cloud cover, the water cycle provides an additional climate cooling effect.

By way of application please provide a motivation letter + a CV/resume including 3 recent references.
