Grand Welsh Dig Challenge Progress
Why a Grand Welsh Dig?
The average person in the UK produces between 8 and 15 tonnes of C02 a year which is one of the major contributors towards man made climate change. We are truly at a tipping point in the health and future of this planet and action needs to be taken now to protect the planet and future generations.
Planting trees can help to balance the ever increasing Carbon Emissions from human activity. Here you can see how many trees it would take to offset carbon emissions throughout your lifetime.
- With an average lifespan of 40 years per tree.
- Average of 20KG of Carbon absorbed each year per year.
- 8 to 15 tonnes = 8,000 to 15,000KG per year.
- So for one person 400 to 750 trees are needed to be planted every 40 years.
- The trees must have enough growing space to keep absorbing C02 for the 40 years.
