A solar-powered carbon sequestration unit in my backyard, with a multi-pronged production system, sequestered six inches of carbon on the tip of each prong in just three days this week. The unit’s name: Horse chestnut.
A standard cherry or apple tree will grow to a height of between 20 and 30 feet. That means I will eventually have to climb a ladder to pick fruit, but it also means that the trees will create more fruit. With their larger size, they’ll also shade more ground, and sequester more carbon from the air.
