Huge thank you to Dr. Kush and Dr. Barlow at Auburn University's School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences.
Another huge thank you to Ashlyn and Bob at the EO Wilson Biophilia Center! Their efforts and education activities were incredibly helpful to let me understand the ecosystem.

@Sir Chow, diversity is important. But, add to the diversity, some randomness in planting. Nothing looks more unnatural, whether in a forest or on satellite imagery than an organization bent on planting as many trees as possible in a designated area. Even when thinned, those replanted forests take on an unnatural look and feel.

I have a sister that does prescribed burns for parks and wildlife department here. They even try to educate private land owners on the benefits of burns, and native grasses on soil and cattle health, then do the burns for free. By and large, they do it all to save some habitat for endangered ground birds. Pretty cool stuff.

A sapling costs only 8-15 cents..that means at a cost of $1 you can have actually 7-12 sapling and in $20 million you could have planted 140-240 million trees...there's something wrong with this work.

You could just plant seeds you find FOR FREE from you local forest and if it's an Acorn, for example, the 80% germination rate is worth the 4 months of waiting them to pop their heads up is worth it, team trees is still good though but this is a cheaper option.

*Think out of the box* Dear TeamTrees, you can save *one billion trees* with the money you have raised. It costs you about $20M to plant 20M trees. However, given the fact that toilet papers cost us 384 trees per lifetime of a person, you can buy bidets and/or hoses that costs $20-$30 each. By spending $20M on this, you can buy a MILLION bidets for a million families. That will help saving about (2.5 people per bathroom) × (1,000,000 bathrooms) (384 trees per person) = *1 BILLION trees!!!!* Of course not everyone is a fan of changing from toilet paper to water but finding a million family willing to endorse this idea out of the 122M American families is actually not that hard. You guys have already raised $21M for helping the environment, but with the same amount of money, you can do much more. Guys please like this if you agree with the proposal so that TeamTrees can read it.

To any of you that want to help plant more trees: search ECOSIA on your browser. they're a search engine that uses 80% of their profits to plant trees. Essentially, your Internet searches will be planting trees, not making shareholders wealthy.

The permanent water drainage to the area of planting, really needs to be considered. Too many trees can lead to drought. Severe and permanently damaging drought. 20million trees ..... Now that's alot of water. I've seen alot of these initiatives over the years, never actually seen the planting come true tbh either. It's always we need to raise funds. No you don't. Go get cuttings and replant. Oh you need people? Then ask. Don't ask for money.

Has any trees been planted? 21.296 million trees "have been planted" according to the site that people gave $21+ million$ to. Has anyone followed up on this? The Arbor Day website states your monies WILL plant that many trees by 2022. I am no rocket surgeon but that is a lot of money, for a lot of trees, collected by an organization that whose website states no scheduled calendar to plant these 21+ million trees or scheduled advertised areas where this mass planting is going to take place. Fundraisers are only legitimate if there is a "business plan" in place BEFORE any collection takes place. There is no tangible plan other than "have been planted". $21+mil$ needs a much bigger public presence than a website stating so.

Hey destin! Big fan here! I’m a forestry student and just wanted you to know that there’s a nursery in Moultrie, Ga. they grow 56,000,000 trees a year. Most of which are planted. No slight to you but 20 mil is just 1/3 of pines trees planted in the southeastern US. Most of the SE states practice sustainable forestry

Anywhere from 3 trees to an area the size of a football field is cleared per second. Nearly 100,000 acres of forest is cleared per day. About 15,000,000,000 trees are cut down every year, according to Nature. In other words, there may be a forest that you live nearby or see from your house. This is just a joke you cannot plant enough
