    I would think if one were to really be interested in carbon offsets they would do a calulation based on the plants growth and how much CO2 it scrubs per season or something like that not the weight of the tree.

    Im pretty certian that different species of plants "respirate" at different levels.

    focus should be on planting the most efficient plants not measuring already standing tress and selling them off to corporations

    The fraud is just immense

    The whole scheme is akin to rewarding someone for mowing and edging the front lawn by allowing them to defecate in the back
