Abstract: Climate scientists working for the IPCC believe human-induced global deforestation is responsible for 18-25% of global climate change. The United Nations, World Bank and other leading non-governmental organizations are encouraging tree planting to mitigate the effects of climate change. Tree planting is grounded in forest science, and if performed properly can result in the successful regeneration of a deforested area. This study identified tree planting as a climate change adaptation strategy for sustainable development and the need for tree planting education in Nigeria. It further identified how poetry can be used innovatively in tree planting education for sustainable environment in Nigeria.
