How we calculate Co2
With an average tree growth life of 25 years, one healthy tree will absorb a minimum of 12.3kg of Co2 per year or 308kg (0.3 tonnes) of Co2 from the atmosphere over its growth life.
With the Average Western Individual Co2 footprint at 15 Tonnes per year, it would take planting just 50 trees per year to offset this.
*With so many factors determining individual tree absorption levels, we use a very conservative calculation to provide a guaranteed figure of Co2 absorbed.
In some cases, it could be 4-8 times higher.
