Does increased CO2 make any plants grow faster?

    Yes, it is well known that plants like CO2. Increased carbon dioxide levels enhance respiration, which facilitates greater transport of
    sugars from leaves to other growing parts of plants. One study conducted an experiment where trees were planted in a heavily polluted city and also in an open country area with less carbon dioxide greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. The results showed a growth rate by twice as much as the country trees for the city trees. This is interesting because if trees and plants do grow faster with increased levels of CO2, then they will produce more oxygen in the atmosphere, which will balance out the CO2, which means that global warming may not be as intense.
