About 5% of a tree is made up of leaves. Through the process of photosynthesis, the leaves absorb Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and Water (H2O), combined with the energy of the SUN (92.96 million miles away), the tree creates chemical compounds such as sugars and starches to feed on. A spectacular byproduct of this air purification process is Oxygen (O), which is then released through the leaves.
It is proposed that one large tree can provide a day’s worth of oxygen for up to four people.
It is also proposed that in one year a mature tree will purify roughly 48 pounds of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere.
The Amazon Rainforest produces more than 20% of the world's oxygen.
Sadly, deforestation is still a prominent worldwide issue, one we should all be concerned about. On average, 80,000 acres of forest disappear EVERY SINGLE DAY. That's an astonishing 15 billion trees per year. According to the United Nations Environmental Program, only 1.9 billion trees are planted each year, worldwide. That's a delta of 13.1 billion trees! At this rate, there will be no rainforests by the year 2120. Over 30 million species of plants and animals will be dead or displaced.
