FAQs / How much CO2 do trees remove from the atmosphere?

Over its lifetime a single tree can absorb much more than its own weight of CO2 from the atmosphere. The tree breaks the CO2 down into carbon and oxygen. The carbon is retained and the oxygen mostly expelled. The processed timber that eventuates is deemed to have absorbed the equivalent of 1.7 tonnes of CO2 for every tonne of its weight.
