How many trees should each person plant?
About 730 trees offset the average carbon dioxide released for each person's fossil fuel usage.
Generally the number of trees planted per hectare will vary from 1,000 to 2,500 trees, but the number will vary hugely, depending on the species and the type of planting.
According to compiled statistics, including the United Nations Environmental Program, approximately 1.9 billion trees are planted yearly. This statistic also estimates that close to 158 million trees around the planet are replanted every month.

1 million trees = a more stable climate
The average fully grown tree will absorb as much as 48 pounds of carbon dioxide, which helps to stabilize our climate and reduce the impacts of climate change. 1 million trees will absorb approximately 24,000 tons of carbon dioxide each year.
At planting time, you should count on planting 400 trees per person in an eight-hour day if you and your helpers are not experienced. If you hire experienced planters you will find they can usually plant 1,000 trees per day or more.
A trillion seconds is 31,000 years.
That's longer than all of recorded human history. A trillion trees — if we planted them serially one right after another, taking only a single second to do so — would take 31,000 years to plant.
Everyone Can Plant a Tree & Help Fight Climate Change. Planting trees is a simple thing everyone can do to reduce carbon dioxide, a principal greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change.
Planting a billion trees can help save the Earth from climate change and biodiversity loss. When we restore and conserve critical forests, we remove carbon and support biodiversity. A billion is a big number, but we know we can do it together. Help plant trees today!
Who planted 3 billion trees?
Under the European Green Deal, the EU biodiversity strategy for 2030 commits to planting at least 3 billion additional trees in the EU by 2030 in full respect of ecological principles.
production on a worldwide scale shows that humans cut down approximately 15 billion trees a year and re-plant about 5 billion.
No. You have the right to plant what you want, where you want within your property. However, it is sensible and neighbourly to consider the consequences of planting potentially large or imposing trees or hedges close to a boundary and make planting decisions to minimise negative impact.
You could get paid to increase public access to your land or to plant trees close to communities. And there's more money for woodland creation that benefits wildlife and improves nature recovery. You can also get funding to grow trees that help reduce flood risk or improve water quality.
Trees can be worth many thousands of dollars if they are good species in good condition in a prime location, or may be worth nothing if they are in poor shape or are poorly located.
Is a tree alive? Yes, but not all of it. Only 1% of a tree is living, and the rest of the tree is made of non-living cells. The non-living parts of the tree provide necessary support to keep the living parts alive and growing.
The environmental impact of #TeamTrees is significant: according to a U.S. Forest Service analysis, planting 20 million trees will absorb 1.6 million tons of carbon – the equivalent of taking 1.24 million cars off the road for a year.
That figure sounds comfortably high – until you understand that we are uprooting 15 billion trees every year and only replanting around five billion. With a net annual loss of 10 billion trees, year on year, we can expect Earth to be totally treeless by 2319.
A single mature tree, meanwhile, may take in about 50 pounds of carbon dioxide per year. At this rate, it would take 640 trees per person to account for all American emissions, which adds up to more than 200 billion trees.
Antoine Moses, from Gaspé, says he can plant on average 16 trees per minute — about one tree every 3.75 seconds. “As soon as I passed that original record I cheered up and hugged all the crew around me. I was stoked and happy but not even 10 seconds after I just kept going,” Moses said.
Can planting a trillion trees stop climate change?
Well, yes and no. Among their many amazing qualities, trees absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Planting a lot of them would – eventually – absorb a lot of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Although any tree absorbs carbon, forests – with their many interwoven elements – provide many other benefits.
Countries that Have Planted the Most Trees.
Many trees at the equator reach maturity in as little as ten to twenty years. In contrast, trees in northern latitudes usually grow a lot more slowly, often less than a meter or two per year. In addition, for a tree to reach maturity in the boreal forests of Canada or parts of Europe, it usually takes 80-120 years!
Make sure you have enough people to help you plant: An adult could probably plant between 12 and 20 trees in one hour.
The yew is our longest-living species, but oaks and sweet chestnuts can both live for over 1,000 years, while other species have lifespans that far outstrip those of humans and most animals. If as old as some believe, the Fortingall yew has stood since the Bronze Age.
