What country offsets the most carbon with their trees?

    That’s rather hard to say. Many countries use tree-planting schemes for carbon sequestration, but most also use a variety of other methods to reduce their carbon footprint as well (which they should–tree planting by itself won’t fix the problem). Currently four countries are racing to become the first carbon-neutral country: Norway, New Zealand, Iceland, and Costa Rica. The Vatican claims that it is already a carbon-neutral country, largely through restoring a forest in Hungary. However, it is largely thought to have cheated, as it didn’t count carbon emissions from Vatican officials traveling around the world, for instance, and several critics have claimed that the entire point of the exercise is to cut down on emissions at home, not offset them with tree planting in another country. For now, it’s debatable which country is closest to that enviable goal of being carbon neutral
