Surely a problem. An even bigger problem when 7 billion use as much energy/resource as 1 billion do now.

Question is how do you reduce it without war, famine, pestilence or forced policies to a sustainable level? The estimate I've heard is 1 billion worldwide.

I think the title is a bit misleading, eh? Trees won't save the world, the world probably doesn't need "saving". Forests are pretty damn resilient though, so even if we managed to wipe out 99% in the process of wiping ourselves out, they'd probably come back.
