What tree is best at removing CO2 from the atmosphere?



  1. 0 Votes

    Typically, a tree will remove as much CO2 for how big it is…So if we want a fast growing tree, to quickly remove Co2 we should plant Pine trees. Oaks and such, however, can last for centuries. As it appears, research has been pointing at Algae to be the most promising plant in removing CO2 due in part to its extremely fast rate of growth.

    A study by the U.S. Forest Service Northern Research Station lists the 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 as examples of trees especially good at absorbing and storing CO2. But any tree that can grow to a healthy size will act as a carbon sink.
