Do plants or trees consume more CO2?

    It really depends on the size of the plant/tree, the number of leaves and their size, the rate of growth, etc. Generally a tree will consume more CO2 than a plant because trees are larger, have more leaves, and thus a greater surface area over which photosynthesis can occur. Remember than plants and trees are made of carbon (C), and that C comes from the C in carbon dioxide (CO2), so it makes sense that a tree consumes much for C02 to build itself into a big tree. This generally amounts to about 15 – 50 lbs of CO2 a year!
