The U.S. will join the “One Trillion Trees Initiative” being launched at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, according to President Donald Trump. “And in doing so, we will continue to show strong leadership in restoring, growing, and better managing our trees and our forests," he said Tuesday. Speaking to global government and business leaders, Trump reported that “the United States has among the cleanest air and drinking water on Earth” and “we're going to keep it that way.” Trump did not directly mention climate change, but tree planting is widely viewed as one way to sequester carbon and address global warming. The Trillion Tree Campaign, part of an initiative that first launched in 2006, says that 13.6 billion trees have already been planted.
