11.38M trees planted equals up to half a billion pounds of CO2 removed from the atmosphere every year!
That’s also enough oxygen for over 11 million people for two years—every year!
- The average person produces 110,000 lbs of carbon dioxide (CO2) annually.
- Just one tree can isolate as much as 48 lbs of CO2 annually (along with other greenhouse gases such as ozone) and releases enough oxygen for one human to breathe for two full years!
- By removing carbon dioxide from the earth’s atmosphere and releasing oxygen, trees help to limit global warming, providing a cleaner, healthier climate for all of us.
- On average, a fully-grown tree can absorb up to 1,000 gallons of rainfall annually. This is water that could erode valuable topsoil, cause flooding or end up in storm drains.
- 35 small lakes and ponds were created as reservoirs to capture and store rainwater, irrigate plants and trees, provide a source of fresh water to the animals and birds, create a home for fish and other water creatures, protect against flooding and serve as an emergency reserve in case of a fire.
