4 to 7 billion trees are cut down every year, according to IntactForests Organization. According to Worldometers, there have been 44 million deaths this year. So as catchy as this meme is, it would take 159 years to replenish one year’s worth of deforestation.
And there’s another problem. 28% of trees are cut down for agricultural reasons since the net gain of the population is about 200k per day.
Still, there’s no reason not to try it, not to let the death of our loved be in vain, but let them help the planet their prodigy inherited. At this point, let’s try anything we can.
