The benefits of plants are widely known and something that we like to rave about whenever we get the chance. This time, the spotlight falls on trees. Here is part one in our five part blog series highlighting some interesting facts that you might not have heard before.

A tree that is approximately thirty meters tall absorbs almost 23kg of carbon dioxide in one year, which is about the same amount of carbon dioxide produced by a car being driven 41,500km. The same tree could also produce over 2,500kg of oxygen, which is enough to support two people. This capacity for photosynthesis and carbon sequestration increases as the tree ages.
