Earth’s trees number 3 trillion

Earth’s trees number 3 trillion according to a tree count carried out by Dr Thomas Crowther and a team from Yale University, who combined a mass of ground survey data with satellite pictures. That’s roughly 420 trees for every person on the planet.

The team estimates that we are removing about 15 billion trees a year, with perhaps only 5 billion being planted back.
