The fight against the climate crisis continues. Trees are growing, but it's still not enough

Decarbonising the planet is becoming an increasingly urgent issue. More and more companies and individuals are getting involved in the fight against pollution and climate change, which are taking their toll, and new projects to reduce CO2 emissions and plant trees, whose numbers have been greatly reduced by deforestation, are on the rise.

According to GoTreeQuotes, a record 1.83 billion trees were planted worldwide in 2021. While that seems like a huge number, it's still far less than the estimated 15.3 billion trees that are cut down each year. To put that into perspective, there are at least 3.04 trillion trees in the world today, which is only 50% of the number that existed on the planet before the human population.

Most famous projects

Fortunately, there are many projects and volunteers who are trying to improve the situation every day. In addition to the world's most famous tree planting project, #teamTrees, led by YouTube philanthropist MrBeast and involving many celebrities including Elon Musk, which has planted more than 24 million trees, there are many other amazing projects. One of the most popular is Grow-Trees, which has planted nearly 19 million trees in 23 countries.

Kenya is also planting

In the first half of November, the Kenyan government granted citizens a working holiday as part of National Tree Planting Day and made 150 million seedlings available. Approximately 2 million people, including government officials, participated in the project. However, this was not a one-off event. In December last year, Kenya announced plans to plant approximately 15 billion trees by 2032. All seedlings are provided free of charge to citizens. Neighbouring Ethiopia also launched a similar programme in 2019. Various local tree planting projects are being set up in almost every country in the world.

Planting as a trend

Betting is also becoming increasingly popular among influencers. Leah Zecchino, who is popular on TikTok, boasted that she can effectively earn around €500 a day this way. Every year, she plants trees in British Columbia, which is a Canadian province.

Planting in Prague

For the second time this year, representatives of the brokerage company Wonderinterest Trading s.r.o. planted trees near Prague in cooperation with the project Sázíme Česko. The autumn planting took place on 6 November 2023. A team of about 20 people led by the managing director Matej Homola planted 1500 new trees during the day. After a busy day, they replenished their energy with roasted sprats. "We consider the project to be extremely successful because we expected to plant at least 10,000 trees this year, but we have already exceeded this number significantly in the first half of the year. It shows that people care about the environment. I am very happy that in this way we can contribute to improving the situation and reducing CO2 emissions," said Homola about the project. Wonderinterest Trading Ltd has pledged to plant one tree for every client account created and for every US$1,000 investment.
