The climate crisis is one of the most talked about issues today. We found a very interesting article we would love to share with you. “As trees grow, they absorb and store the carbon dioxide emissions that are driving global heating. New research estimates that a worldwide planting programme could remove two-thirds of all the emissions that have been pumped into the atmosphere by human activities…” That is a huge number to decrease the emissions just by planting trees! The solution is so simple; isn't it?

We really want to encourage each and everyone of our valued clients to jump on board with this research and consider planting at least one tree in your yard. If everybody does just a little bit to combat the climate crisis, the results could be phenomenal.

Research shows there’s plenty of room to plant more trees. 11% to be exact where we can plant more trees that won’t hinder crops and urban areas. "...equivalent to the size of the US and China combined.”
