it is Do You Know What I Am Going To Do Next Saturday
*To produce each week's Sunday newspapers, 500,000 trees must be cut down.
*Recycling a single run of the Sunday New York Times would save 75,000 trees.
* If all our newspaper was recycled, we could save about 250,000,000 trees each year!
* If every American recycled just one-tenth of their newspapers, we would save about 25,000,000 trees a year.
* If you had a 15-year-old tree and made it into paper grocery bags, you'd get about 700 of them. A supermarket could use all of them in under an hour! This means in one year, one supermarket goes through 60,500,000 paper bags! Imagine how many supermarkets there are in the U.S.!!!
* The average American uses seven trees a year in paper, wood, and other products made from trees. This amounts to about 2,000,000,000 trees per year!
* The amount of wood and paper we throw away each year is enough to heat 50,000,000 homes for 20 years.
* When you smell a dump, what you're actually smelling is the paper in the dump!
* Approximately 1 billion trees worth of paper are thrown away every year in the U.S.
* Americans use 85,000,000 tons of paper a year; about 680 pounds per person.
* The average household throws away 13,000 separate pieces of paper each year. Most is packaging and junk mail.
* In 1993, U.S. paper recovery saved more than 90,000,000 cubic yards of landfill space.
* In 1993, nearly 36,000,000 tons of paper were recoverd in the U.S.--twice as much in 1980.
* 27% of the newspapers produced in America are recycled.
* Each ton (2000 pounds) of recycled paper can save 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, three cubic yards of landfill space, 4000 kilowatts of energy, and 7000 gallons of water. This represents a 64% energy savings, a 58% water savings, and 60 pounds less of air pollution!
* The 17 trees saved (above) can absorb a total of 250 pounds of carbon dioxide from the air each year. Burning that same ton of paper would create 1500 pounds of carbon dioxide.
it's used to make paper, and maple syrup. also trees give us oxygen and we give carbon dioxide and they use it to make oxygen.
You can get addicted to it
Shelterwood is a harvesting system where sufficient numbers of trees of a given density remain to act as a protective crop for newly planted or regenerated seedlings to thrive. Shelterwoods act as nurse crops helping to prevent snow press, reduce pest management risks and helping to modulate within stand temperature extremes preventing excessive cold and heat from damaging the regenerating crop below. At a future time, the shelterwood is harvested to release the crop it was protecting. The density of remaining mature shelterwood trees may also vary by the regenerating species light requirements and pest management needs. For example, Eastern White Pine (Pinus strobus) can suffer from extensive white pine weevil [Pissodes strobi (Peck)] damage, which attacks the leaders (tops) thus splitting the tree into multiple tops and significantly reducing the log qualities of the future crop. Evidence points to moderate shade drastically reducing the impact of the white pine (leader) weevil thus dramatically improving the quality of logs from the future stand of Eastern White Pine. As such, Eastern White Pine is ideally suited to the even-aged shelterwood harvesting management system.
Shelterwoods can also cause an increase in within stand snow accumulations, thus increasing the total amount of precipitation that site receives.
up to 4 trees per second
320 per minuet
19,200 per hour
460,800 per day
this is only if 4 trees are cut down per second, (and is not the average)
Im not sure if this answers your question but a forest the size of 4 Football (soccer) fields is cut down every minute :)
