What would you like to do?
Really, Trees, both leafy and otherwise, reflect sunshine in very particular patterns, making it possible for satellites to map and computers to count strips of land where trees are. Biologists can then sample those places - forests, suburbs, city parks, even city streets - assume a tree density, multiply by acre or hectare, and calculate that. In 2005, there were 400,246,300,201 (more or less) trees on our globe. (That's over 400 billion, for those of you who have trouble working through the commas.) ***EDIT*** - Strange, 400 billion trees only averages out to 60 trees to every 1 human being? Most scientist agree that the data needed to complete the complex mathematics required to accurately approximate the number of trees on the planet Earth simply does not exist. The truth is, we have no idea. Estimates have ranged from anywhere between 1 to 10 trillion trees currently inhabit the surface of the Earth (a considerably noticeable gap can easily be observed between these two figures lol). The number you quoted above (400,246,300,201) was a study funded by an extremely liberal organization which went on to claim (outrageously) that over 50% of the trees on the planet Earth have been harvested/destroyed by human beings. If this were true, the entire human population would have been swept away in an enormous fresh water flood and any remaining survivors would eventually die from starvation, soil degradation/poisoning and/or extreme atmospheric deterioration. I'll let the rest of you decide what you CHOOSE to believe.

Thanks for the feedback!
about 90-120 billion
yah mum yah mum
Because they give off a LOT of oxygen! Trees help the earth by giving us oxygen and if we didn't have trees we wouldn't have oxygen and if we didn't have oxygen then there w…ould be no food... it would be like living in space.
about 200 billion trees on earth
It's not possible to inventory the precise number of trees.
they provide oxygen which helps us breathe
Because the climate is perfect for plant growth
There are about 115 species of pine tree.
trees are important to the earth because without trees we wouldn't get any air and we would die
They give oxygen and oxygen brings life
The oldest tree on earth is the Red Oak Tree, Olive tree's can live for longer but they aren't know for living for a long time. Mostly because its almost impossible to tell ho…w old a tree is without cutting it down and counting the rings.
If there were no trees on earth then then we would have no air to breathe because the trees take up the most oxygen in this world. This is one o the reasons why we should be t…elling the government that they should not cut down any more tress for human resources. I mean there is hardly no more tropical rain Forest no because of the government not taking action and stop cutting down trees. I mean the trees they cut down are animals home's well used to be until they cut them down ! I pray that the government will stop cutting down trees !
thousands and thousands of trees are planted
there are about more then billion trees
For one thing, there are many places on Earth that don't have hurricanes or major earthquakes. Second, earthquakes generaly do not have a significant effect on trees. Thir…d, trees do have some ability to survive hurricanes, and overall, most areas will go long enough between significant hurricane impacts for the trees to recover.
