Plant A Tree

One, Two, Tree!

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, a single acre of forest can absorb 6 tons of carbon dioxide annually.

That same number of trees can also generate 4 tons of oxygen per year—enough to meet the needs of 18 people!

Check with a local nature center, environmental organization or Parks and Recreation department to find a tree planting event in your area. If you’re living in a city, you may even be able to plant a tree on a street in your neighborhood.

We know this challenge might be easier said than done. If planting a tree today, tomorrow or even next week just isn’t in the cards, consider donating to a cause that can plant one for you!
