An average tree captures 200 kg of Co2 over its lifetime, or in other words, 10 kg annually over 20 years. Although trees capture carbon throughout their whole lives, the highest amount of carbon is absorbed at the beginning of a trees' life-cycle which is approximately 20 years.

The amount of Co2 captured also varies on the tree type, soil and climate in which the tree grows.

Regions such as the tropics are better suited to capture bigger amounts of Co2 and it can be performed much faster in that climate.
