'Planting trees to combat carbon emissions is overwhelmingly more powerful than any other climate change solution'
Bristish Scientist 2019
30% of our planet is covered in trees. Trees take carbon dioxide out of the air & release oxygen, making them a natural source of carbon capture.
Trees planted near to the equator can be especially beneficial as they grow faster in warm, wet & humid environments
A baby sapling will absorb 6kgs of CO2 in its first year, growing to 22kgs per year when it matures to 10 years old, & then continues to do so for its expected lifespan of 150 years.

There are currently 3 trillion trees on our planet, however this is not enough & we need to keep planting to make a substantial difference.
