Millions, hundreds of millions even, of trees are dying in North America and around the world, from a host of reasons. Should we ignore this fact it will completely and permanently alter the environment and our world.
“Tree are among the most abundant and the most critical organisms on planet earth, and only recently have we been able to assess just how many trees inhabit planet earth. A study published in 2015 gave us this picture:
“A new study published in Nature estimates the planet has 3.04 trillion trees. The research says 15.3 billion trees are chopped down every year. It also estimates that 46% of the world’s trees have been cleared over the past 12,000 years.”
