Mangrove trees surround Cristalino Cenote (pictured), a water-filled sinkhole on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. Soils beneath mangrove-ringed cenotes have some of the highest carbon concentrations in the world. Trees are the safest, least damaging to the planet, and most practical way to remove CO2 from the atmosphere and reduce global warming.

Certain areas of mangrove forest growing around sinkholes in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula are managing to store more than five times the amount of carbon normally stored by terrestrial forests, according to findings published in Biology Letters. The findings could point to a way for carbon emitters to balance their emissions with sequestration
