Plant two trees for each one removed.
In America's rural ag areas (due to the high returns on planted fields); particularly corporate and younger farmers have been removing post 1930 era planted treerows in order increase row crop areas for planting and income.
There should be some sort of soil conservation rules requirement that on an even and equitable basis at least an equal amount of acreage somewhere on the property or on other similarly owned property within the county be planted with trees as replacement for those being removed.
If rules governing removal applied to all, competitive advantage is removed as a factor for tree removals.
Trees hold soil in the plains states and, importantly, increase moisture and convert CO2 to directly into oxygen.
Tree planting programs should be intensified.
Further, states effected by the great dust bowl during the 1930's should not be allowed to drain tile sloughs as they provide a natural broad filtering system for water later reaching aquifers.......and, provide for sport and bird migration as well as broadly adding moisture to the air over expansive areas.
Financial drive to increase and convert to row crops is currently cutting down treerows and draining sloughs throughout the entire area of America's former dust bowl and beyond.

Just common sense; surprised the federal government's regulators never noticed.
