How much is a tree worth? Can we put $ value on a single tree?
That is exactly what Professor T.M.Das from the University or Calcutta has done. If a tree lives for 50 years then it will generate approximately $31 250 worth of oxygen and $62000 worth of air pollution control. This is only a small fraction of what a tree is estimated to be worth.
So next time someone asks you ‘It’s only a single tree. What does it do for me?’ you can now answer them.
