Carbon neutral benefits

Submitted by on June 26, 2010 – 11:46 pmNo Comment

A mature tree removes 48 pounds of carbon dioxide (C02) per year from the air (roughly 10 tons per.acre).

The amount of carbon stored annually by an acre of trees is approximately equal to the amount released by burning 1,000 gallons of gasoline.

A tree that provides shade and wind protection to buildings can indirectly cause, via energy conservation, reductions in carbon dioxide emissions equal to 15 times the amount of carbon dioxide the tree will absorb. (from Journal of Arboriculture V. 16(6) 1990 p. 144) One acre of trees annually consumes the amount of carbon dioxide equivalent to that produced by driving an average car for 26,000 miles.

That same acre of trees also produces enough oxygen for 18 people to breathe for a year. A deciduous tree, like the American beech, that is 80-100 years old has about 1,600 square yards of leaf surface area to which dust particles can adhere. A healthy tree stores about 13 lbs. of carbon each year, and a healthy acre of trees can store 2.6 tons of carbon a year.

It takes the wood from a 100-foot tree to keep the average American supplied for a year with newspaper, books, magazines, tissues, paper towels, housing materials, furniture, desks, fences, boxes and other assorted wood products. On the average that use amounts to: 613 lbs. of paper products 200 square feet of
