    Good question, Kristina.  This really depends on what location you are talking about, since not every tree thrives as well in different areas of the US.  Dave Nowak, a researcher for the US Forest Service, concluded in a study done in 2002 that 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 are all trees that are good for absorbing co2.  Ultimately, it just boils down to planting the tree most suited for the location and climate.
