ยท       Plant-for-the-Planet  is a group of young people world -wide that are planting trees.  Started by Felix Finkberner     Here is a small part of their mission statement: “ Trees Are Amazing!  How many trees are there in the world? Scientists from Yale and 23 other universities have been busy trying to answer this question for us kids from Plant-for-the-Planet. Just a short time ago, in September 2015, they revealed a definitive answer to this question – the earth has three trillion trees! At first glance, this seems like an enormous number. However, scientists also found out that we humans have already destroyed 46%, so almost half, of the trees that there once were. Furthermore, the study shows that we lose around 15 billion trees per year due to deforestation.”
