What kind of trees absorb the most carbon?

    For the most part, all trees absorb carbon. Typically, the larger a tree is physically, the more carbon dioxide it can take in to breathe out into oxygen. However, some species of trees have proven themselves to be more carbon-absorbent than others. According to study co-authored by Dave Nowak, trees that tend to be very absorbent of carbon dioxide are these trees: Common Horse Chestnut, Black Walnut, American Sweetgum, Ponderosa Pine, Red Pine, White Pine, London Plane, Hispaniolan Pine, Douglas Fir, Scarlet Oak, Red Oak, Virginia Live Oak and Bald Cypress. Scientists also suggest that we can offset greenhouse effects by simply planting more trees, so long as they are appropriate for their regions.
