Trees help to absorb carbon and other gasses from the atmosphere. A single mature tree can absorb 22lbs. of carbon a year, and makes enough clean oxygen for 4 people to breathe fresh air. A previous special report by IPCC stated that tree-planting could sequester around 1.1–1.6 GT of CO2 per year. 2. Trees protect coastal communities.

Trees also absorb water. By absorbing water in the ground, trees lower the stress on storm drains and mitigate any flood risk. An adult tree can absorb between 50-100 gallons of water from the ground a year, and their roots can help improve the soil quality and prevent erosion, so more water is held within the ground.

Protecting existing forests and planting new ones are surely good things to do. However, scientists say we must not place too much faith in trees to save us. In particular, last year one research group claimed we can plant a trillion extra trees and remove a quarter of the carbon dioxide currently in the air.
Trees help cool the planet by sucking in and storing harmful greenhouse gases, like carbon dioxide, into their trunks, branches, and leaves, and releasing oxygen back into the atmosphere. In cities, trees can reduce overall temperature by up to eight degrees Celsius.
As you have understood by now: Planting trees for free is partly the will of a company to do good for the planet, and partly a marketing strategy. But who doesn’t love marketing strategies that change the world for the better?
At that rate, they release enough oxygen back into the atmosphere to support two human beings. Planting 100 million trees could reduce an estimated 18 million tons of carbon per year and consequently save American consumers $4 billion each year on utility bills.
