According to the Central Park Conservancy, in one year, just a single mature tree will absorb more than forty-eight pounds of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and convert it into oxygen. There are over 20,000 trees in Central Park, which adds up to roughly one million pounds of carbon dioxide removed from the city's air each year. This is comparable to the amount of greenhouse gas produced by an average passenger car driving 1,109,028 miles, the amount of electricity used by 79.1 homes for one year or 57,838,615 smartphone charges.
