    We can determine this by doing some basic math.

    One tree produces 16.67 reams of paper or about 8,335 sheets of business paper. One ream of paper, which equates to 500 sheets, uses 6% of a tree grown for paper production.  1 ton of coated magazine paper (used for magazines like National Geographic) uses a little more than 15 trees. Using this measurement you will get about 1,100 magazines from 15 trees.  So one National Geographic consumes about 1.3% of a tree.
