Trees are planted all over the world, in millions, billions, trillions. Yet the deserts are advancing inexorably worldwide and threaten the habitat of People and animals. FORESTMAKER portrays the Australian agronomist Tony Rinaudo and the farmers who, together with him, are revolutionising our idea of agriculture and forestry in Africa and thus calling conventional reforestation into question.
