Time To PLANT Some Trees!


Lamar Johnson, Staff Writer

You read it correctly! It’s time to put your gardening hat and gloves on and head outside to plant some trees! This idea was created by YouTube star, Mr. Beast. The overall goal is to plant 20,000,000 trees by January 1st, 2020.

So far, 12,923,587 trees have been planted, and many more donations are expected. It is estimated that 20,000,000 trees would take up 180 km. That is 69 sq miles of land.

Honestly, I don’t think 20,000,000,000 trees aren’t enough. Every year, 7,000,000,000,000 trees get cut down so the organization needs to change its goal to something a little bit higher. Overall I think their intentions are great.

However, they started way to late. It’s late 2019 and they would barely make their goal. I hope they make it to their goal.
