Most of the carbon footprint emissions for the average U.S. household come from "indirect" sources, (e.g. fuel burned to produce goods far away from the final consumer). These are distinguished from emissions which come from burning fuel directly in one's car or stove, commonly referred to as "direct" sources of the consumer's carbon footprint. On average, 26% of an American’s annual carbon emission comes from “Stuff You Buy” (Source: Union of Concerned Scientists).

Tree planting is an important element in the solution to tackle climate change - trees absorb carbon dioxide and mitigate habitat and biodiversity loss, reduce soil erosion and aridity due to their support of the water cycle, by grounding the water in their roots and releasing it into the atmosphere. On average a common matured tree that is planted in the tropics typically offsets 48 pounds of carbon a year and over their lifetime will offset about 1 ton (Source: onetreeplanted.org)
Trees are absolutely critical to reducing the greenhouse effect, we just need to remember that they are not the total answer to saving the environment, but rather one important step we can collectively take to change the way we live.
