4-H Million Trees
- 1,000,000 new trees planted by 4-H youth across the United States and Canada!
- Added beauty and heritage to urban, suburban, and rural communities across the nation.
- Improved local air quality.
- Absorbed runoff and surface groundwater.
- Shade to help cool buildings, reducing air conditioning electricity needs and the pollution and carbon emission associated with this power generation.
- Lowered greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuel combustion by the trees' absorption of about 48,000,000 million pounds of atmospheric carbon dioxide per year.
- Replacement of trees lost to deforestation worldwide.
- Increased knowledge as 4-H youth make a difference and change the world, both individually and as groups.
