EDIT for theory craft sake:
So,lets say we replicate our atmosphere,we refill mars giantics oceans, introduce every vital bio-component our planet needs(namely and most important plankton),modify the ground to make it fertile,all that work would be for naught if the plate tectonic is stagnant,for it is the main tool for the world autorenewal.The planet would be a red dead rock again in god-knows how much time.
