Carbon sequestration, air quality, and climate change

  • A tree can absorb as much as 48 pounds of carbon dioxide per year, and can sequester one ton of carbon dioxide by the time it reaches 40 years old.
  • One large tree can provide a supply of oxygen for two people.

Every live tree killed during thinning results in 5000 tons of Greenhouse Gases that will remain in the atmosphere!

Every tree killed during thinning results removes oxygen from the atmosphere that would otherwise support the life of 2 people!
