It's no surprise that planting a tree can help combat climate change, but you might wonder which tree to plant. The best trees are ones that are fast-growing, native to your region and can live for a long time. In a nutshell, trees fight climate change by absorbing carbon from the atmosphere. So it makes sense that large, fast-growing, long-living trees will act as the best "sponges" of carbon. Tree species like maple and oak tend to be great candidates for this.
