      If you're awesome and want to "join" #TeamTrees, use the first link in the video description or you can click on the SEprom donate link above! My favorite thing about this whole movement is that tons of people are coming together from all over the internet to unify for a common goal. I genuinely get excited when a diverse group of people come together to do something amazing, and I believe this could be our moment. If you're a working adult, please consider donating in a big way to this. I can think of no more efficient way for your dollars to be converted into ACTUAL, REAL LIFE TREES! LET'S plant 20 Million trees!!

        @Sir Chow, diversity is important. But, add to the diversity, some randomness in planting. Nothing looks more unnatural, whether in a forest or on satellite imagery than an organization bent on planting as many trees as possible in a designated area. Even when thinned, those replanted forests take on an unnatural look and feel.

      2. Billy Whitley

        SmarterEveryDay As of 1:30 AM (CTZ) Dec 19th, 2019... we are at a rate of 2500 trees an hour.. thats 60000 trees a day... by Jan 1st, 2020 we should reach 20,570,600+ trees!!!!

      3. project music

        Hey Genius, you can also just use ecosia as search webmashine, instead google!!😎 Ecosia planted over 70000000 trees🌿🌿

      4. project music

        Do you know ecosia the search engine which plants tree?:)🌿🌿🌿🌿

      5. MrPiggy Gamer123

        SmarterEveryDay how does the laser for engraving things on dog tags work, and in slow mow, I would like to know this.

    2. Kaveh Paymayesh

      To any of you that want to help plant more trees: search ECOSIA on your browser. they're a search engine that uses 80% of their profits to plant trees. Essentially, your Internet searches will be planting trees, not making shareholders wealthy.

      Man, you didn't have to do me like that...

    7. Jedi's garage

      Can you do follow up video on this project? How many trees was planted. How project is going etc.

    8. Neyu

      this is nice and all but are they planting random trees or chosing different species so the forest won't die after they leave

    9. Glen Mccarthy

      People have been smoking the hopium pipe for too long , when it becomes apparent that there is no antidote for global warming there will be a mass mental health crisis , and as ecosystems inevitably collapse every other earthling will end up in the stew pot.

    10. C Graves

      Plant trees!! But my favorite part of this video is when you and your family bow their heads to pray at dinner. Those roots are the roots this country needs more of. Thanks for your videos, Destin

    11. Chaotic Ascendency

      So, Just one type of tree? Contributing to the loss of biodiversity and creating net emitters of carbon? Has to be more going on that you missed and didn't talk about with this?

    12. Joseph Kim

      after the 3rd time he called him "grandaddy" i exited the video lol

    13. Surabhi Vyas

    17. Aman singh

    18. Christina Kurtz

      I planted 42 trees last week!! Supporting you guys with love and blisters!! Great job you guys!! It matters! It really does! Thank you**

    19. Mian Jalal

      Lol Imran Khan(the prime minister of Pakistan) is planting 5 billion trees in Pakistan from 2018-2023, he planeted 1.5 million trees in the first day of the project in 2018

      The permanent water drainage to the area of planting, really needs to be considered. Too many trees can lead to drought. Severe and permanently damaging drought. 20million trees ..... Now that's alot of water. I've seen alot of these initiatives over the years, never actually seen the planting come true tbh either. It's always we need to raise funds. No you don't. Go get cuttings and replant. Oh you need people? Then ask. Don't ask for money.

    22. Israel Martinez

      That amazing Dustin, today I thank you. And tomorrow my children will thank you too.

    23. Shaun Frank

      Total raised: $21,528,648Where's the "20m trees by 2020" ?

      Forestry professor has last name 'kush', nice

    25. Youngstunning _

      Dr kush worried about the wrong trees 👀

    26. K. M.

      Why worry about planting trees, they are cutting them down like crazy everywhere to accommodate 5g.

    27. Kumar Vibhav

      Justin! Save the whales! One whale is equivalent to 15-20,000 trees! over its lifetime, in absorbing CO2 and burying deep into the ocean when it dies! I'm going to try to post it to all your already amazing videos, along with Mr. Beast and Mark Rober! Hope you see this one day! A few likes would help 🙏 to push this up❤️

    28. alex lillie

      15,280,000,000 tree are still going to get cut down

    29. junaid hossain

      How do we plant trees if we are in constant shortage of land?? Do you think green building are the next steps towards saving out environment? Please make a video on this and let us know how we as common people implement the same.

    31. Tom Bo

      We all live where trees once stood. There are simply too many of us. Overpopulation is the problem.

      The USA burns wood to generate electricity Ironic seeing an American raising money to plant trees You guys have dozens and dozens of power plants that do this It's called "bio mass" power Look it probably have a new wood burning power station near you

    38. MJY Animations

      easiest way: throw 20million seeds into a plain

    39. L l

      Look into downloading Ecosia! It's a free chrome web extension that raises money to plant trees where they are needed. The ad revenue they earn when you search the web is used to plant trees.

    40. Good Good Idea maker

      Watch out for corona its coming in 2020

    41. Shreehari Acharya

      Imagine if we at india were to raise 20million dollars for some NOBLE cause

      Are there any apartments in your area? I’d volunteer daily time to help you build your experiments just to be involved in the science!

    43. Leo Eeo

      wow.. trees are really boring.

      You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into songbefore you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands. Isaiah 55:12 This is the bible verse at the of end of the video

    47. Growing Woods

      Nice and inspiring videos to plant tree i have started to plant some

    48. G H

      Dr Kush recommends burning trees :)

    49. Ben Zo

      I was expecting to see 20Meter trees being planted. :(

    50. uhuk gfhfy

      How much oxigen do these trees produce compared to other trees?

    51. Wiley Dotzenroth

      You should see what the president of Turkmenistan did in the capital of Ashgabat...he was tired of desert so he plants millions of trees every year. It’s...well, I don’t know how to describe what dictators do in their spare time.

    52. Stanley Banks

      The heat from wildfires actually replant the forest. Some species need the burn to release their seeds.

    53. William Chao

      How about 2 billion trees?

    54. Cormy1Live

      Title of this vid is a little inaccurate/misleading to the content.

    55. Spaceman

      More like smarter every month. Buuuut quality over quantity

    56. JC

      Congrats, guys!

    57. Lowell Martin

      Just don't plant Chinese Elms. They grow fast but are prone to disease and are ugly. Stick to maple, oak, pine, ash, poplar and other native hard and soft woods.

    58. Alessio Cazzaniga

      Thanks You All of You for This

    59. Undecided722

      Lol cut down trees to make what your walking on...

    60. Little Bacchus

      Doesn't your one true chosen godly representative on earth claim climate change is hogwash... So why plant the trees Destin?

    61. fyrbyrd 71

      Has any trees been planted? 21.296 million trees "have been planted" according to the site that people gave $21+ million$ to. Has anyone followed up on this? The Arbor Day website states your monies WILL plant that many trees by 2022. I am no rocket surgeon but that is a lot of money, for a lot of trees, collected by an organization that whose website states no scheduled calendar to plant these 21+ million trees or scheduled advertised areas where this mass planting is going to take place. Fundraisers are only legitimate if there is a "business plan" in place BEFORE any collection takes place. There is no tangible plan other than "have been planted". $21+mil$ needs a much bigger public presence than a website stating so.

    62. Cody dog

      I plant about 600 trees a year.

    63. Andrew Alexander

      Hey destin! Big fan here! I’m a forestry student and just wanted you to know that there’s a nursery in Moultrie, Ga. they grow 56,000,000 trees a year. Most of which are planted. No slight to you but 20 mil is just 1/3 of pines trees planted in the southeastern US. Most of the SE states practice sustainable forestry

      That chick is a textbook tree hugger.

    70. Addicted2u

      Anywhere from 3 trees to an area the size of a football field is cleared per second. Nearly 100,000 acres of forest is cleared per day. About 15,000,000,000 trees are cut down every year, according to Nature. In other words, there may be a forest that you live nearby or see from your house. This is just a joke you cannot plant enough

    71. OG Nova

      Wow, amazing this all came together {{{accident}}}

    72. Mantas K

      Also you have to look for correct time Spring is the best time in place I live Maybe you have to look for vet period

    73. Mantas K

      Planted trees mostly need irigation First 3 month

    74. chris madill

      Now Australian wildfire help? their government hasn't helped people can

    75. Phil Nolan

      Is it a bad thing that there are so many wild fires around the world (destroying tress and emitting CO2)? Do we need to be smarter about the trees that are planted and controlled burn offs?

    76. Bighaverlegend 69

      The Goal has been accomplished It’s 2020 and we have planted 21,000,000

    77. TheAlabamboo
