How Much CO2 Does A Tree Absorb Each Year

It varies from tree to tree but a single tree can absorb as much as 48 lbs (21.77 kgs) of Co2 per year.

The average American produces about 19.78 metric tonnes (21.8 tons) of CO2 emissions each year. This means it would take 909 trees to absorb the CO2 your average american produces each year.

Clearly planting trees alone would not solve our climate crisis.
