Trees and Carbon value

Posted by Quinn Connolly on March 20, 2023


I love the planting of trees. However, in my Master Gardener training, there is a caution for them. The commercial process of tree production has a lot of carbon involved with it. The average commercially produced tree lives 12 years. It’s carbon emissions in it’s production and planting takes 30 years to make up. So that was my question in the discussion frame.

Just something to consider.
