Tree Planting

Trees are the oldest and largest living organisms on earth. They support life and keep the natural balance of our planet. They also play a fundamental role in climate change.

Each year, a single tree has the ability to remove 48 pounds of carbon dioxide from the air,” It is said that when the last tree dies, the last man dies. It is our aim to help plant over 1 million trees in the next few years.

The importance of trees in our daily lives are so enormous that we cannot allow all the trees to die.

  • Trees properly placed around buildings can reduce A/C needs by 30%
  • A mature tree removes nearly 70 times more pollution than a newly planted tree.
  • Each average-sized tree provides an estimated $7 savings in annual environmental benefits, including energy conservation and reduced pollution.
  • A single tree produces approximately 260 pounds of oxygen per year. That means two mature trees can supply enough oxygen annually to support a family of four!
  • Water originating in our national forests provide drinking water for over 3400 communities, and approximately 60 million individuals.
  • One tree can absorb as much carbon in a year as a car produces while driving 26,000 miles.
  • Over the course its life, a single tree can absorb one ton of carbon dioxide.
