The United States is joining the One Trillion Trees Initiative, President Donald Trump said on Jan. 21.
Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Trump said the United States is joining the initiative.
“We’re committed to conserving the majesty of God’s creation and the natural beauty of our world,” Trump said.
America “will continue to show strong leadership in restoring, growing, and better managing our trees and our forests,” he added, drawing applause.
The One Trillion Trees Initiative was announced during the forum. It encourages countries to plant trees as part of the effort to combat climate change. The goal is to plant 1 trillion trees by 2050.
Ecologist Dr. Thomas Crowther told the forum last year that humans should plant 1.2 trillion trees to cancel out the past decade of CO2 emissions.
