Why don’t I just plant trees in my own community?

You can plant trees where you live for all the beauty and services they give us. But, if you are looking to make a bigger difference per tree in cleaning the carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere, planting trees near the Equator gives you greater results. Without a cold dormant period, the trees planted in tropical rainy climes near the Equator far exceed growth rates of trees grown in North America and Europe The abundant undergrowth commonly found in tropical forests adds even more carbon sequestration capacity, not to mention all the other host of environmental services trees provide every minute of every day.
