Plant a Billion Trees

During 2007, the United Nations wants the worldwide population to plant a total of a billion trees. A BILLION! That is a lot of trees. They are urging this in an effort to fight global climate change and to replace the many, many trees removed every year for development and lumber.

The cool thing is that you can actually pledge online the number of trees you plan on planting for the effort. If you thought the billion tree target was a little ridiculous, they already have pledges of 808,733,559. All you need to do is commit to planting 191,266,441 trees. I'll do you the favor of pledging to plant 2 myself.

By the way, most cities offer free trees if you will plant them. Call up your city and ask if they have such a program.

Go here to make your pledge http://environment.about.com/gi/dynamic/offsite.htm?zi=1/XJ&sdn=environment&cdn=newsissues&tm=23&f=10&tt=2&bt=1&bts=1&zu=http%3A//www.unep.org/billiontreecampaign/
