Plant a Billion Trees

http://www.plantabillion.org/

We plant a tree a day. One dollar. One Tree. One Plant. This project involves planting and restoring thousands of trees within Brazil’s Caraíva River Basin and along the Frades River.

Plant A Billion Trees is projected to remove 12 tons of carbon dioxide per 2.4 acres, per year. If the project reaches its full 2,400-acre goal, it could remove up to 360,000 tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere over its 30-year lifespan according to Gilberto Tiepolo, Forest Carbon Coordinator for The Nature Conservancy in the Atlantic Forest and Central Savannas. That’s roughly the equivalent of taking 65,000 cars off the road.
