The world has about 3 trillion trees and more than 60,000 different species.
However, trees are very specific to their environments. More than half of the tree species in the world only grow in a certain country.
Trees are positives for the environment for so many reasons, from absorbing excess carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen to providing habitat and food sources for wildlife.
Let's celebrate trees with a fun and simple thumbprint tree craft.
