Planting half a trillion trees
What if we could reduce the severity of climate change by planting hundreds of billions of trees to remove excess carbon from our atmosphere?
Studies show that the Earth can support an additional 900 million hectares of forest, or about half a trillion trees, which is enough to negate about 20 years of human-produced carbon emissions (at the current rate).
While planting trees will never be a substitute for decreasing fossil fuel emissions we think this initiative is a great way to contribute, which is why we joined the Carbon Neutral program.
Carbon Neutral has planted over 29+ million trees so far, specialising in biodiverse conservation plantings, using native trees and shrubs.
More trees can sequester carbon, contribute to reducing soil salinity, help combat wind and water erosion, enhance biodiversity and restore habitat for native animals.
With the Plant-a-Tree program we are committed to planting a tree for every invoice raised. Current planting is happening in the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor, an area located in Western Australia's northern agricultural region, approximately 400 km north of Perth.
