According to Scientificamerican.com, by the end of the year, emissions from industrial activities and the burning of fossil fuels will pump an estimated 36.8 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
That is a whopping 4.5 tons per person.
The average American burns about 16 tons of Co2, the average European about 7 tons per year.
The average tree offsets about 7 tons of carbon dioxide per year.
So, to offset your entire Co2 with trees, the average European should plant about one tree per year, or 80 trees for the entire life.
The price includes a laminated sign for each tree showing the owner's name, the tree species, and the year it was planted.
Plant 80 tree and offset your lifetime of CO2
We plant trees that are either native to South-East Asia, or introduced to Thailand a long time ago, so not to disturb the local ecosystem.
We plant trees that are excellent absorbers of Co2, like many hardwood species, among others, Rosewood, Teak, Agar, Ebony, Amboyna, and the Rain Tree.
According to a research conducted at the School of Forestry of the Bogor Agricultural Institute, Indonesia, a mature "Rain Tree" with a crown diameter measuring 15 metres absorbed 28.5 tons of CO2 annually. More than 4 times the average.
