Students plant trees, does it matter?

You all know about the plans for volunteers to plant trees on MLK day in January, right? Well, Centralia College students have already engaged in planting trees, which can be used to reduce the college’s carbon footprint. Everyone knows trees absorb carbon dioxide but that may or may not make a real difference in global warming. It’s probable that adding more trees to capture carbon dioxide can’t hurt. Anyway, a tip of the hat to the students who are doing it. You can read about the planting effort at the college’s blue@gold Web site: <http://www.ccbluegold.com/centralia-s-stream-team-gives-trees-a-new-chance-1.2420731&gt;.

I wonder what the offset cost is for using cut Christmas trees rather than artificial ones.
