They don't count the baby trees. There are way more trees than 3 trillion trees

On a vacant lot nearby, that used to be mowed, the owner just stopped mowing it. Three years later is it covered in trees. The oldest and most robust are way taller than the newer baby trees. But if you just count the visible ones from a sat photo, you would be seriously wrong about the number of trees. Also due to abundant rain fall and higher CO2 levels, the trees are growing 4 times faster than they did 40 years ago.

Of course you can't count baby trees. But I can.

I don't see how they can count tress (or anything else) under a forest canopy.

They do what robinson does -- pull a number out of their ass.

Because of the idiotic policy of not allowing ANY fires at all, ever, the Smoky mountains are seriously fucked up. Species that need fire, and clearings due to fire, are going extinct. The entire forest is also seriously full of dead wood, and when a fire (from lightning) eventually doesn't get snuffed right away, there is going to be one hell of an un-natural firestorm.

Which will dump a huge amount of otherwise sequestered CO2 into the atmosphere...

Actually the "smoky" part is really condensation or cloud which form under certain conditions. The spooky part is the clouds are very small and isolated and can persist in a location for some time. They look for all the world like the spirits are having a campfire.

The blue cloud look is almost always there, and is from the volatile organic compounds trees give off, which in combination with water vapor condensate, creates the blue haze that looks like smoke.

So seedlings or saplings don't count. It has to reach a certain stage of maturity to count as a tree.

Yes and it appears that the paper's definition is also the common definition.
