An Earth Day executive order signed by Governor Evers calls for planting 75 million trees by 2030 and to conserve 125,000 acres of forest land. The governor’s office says the pledge will result in 28.8 million metric tons of carbon dioxide stored over the next 50 years. Evers says sustainably managing Wisconsin forests will not only generate climate change mitigation benefits, but also contributes $24.4 billion annually to Wisconsin’s economy, supports the health of our citizens and helps maintain the high quality of life that defines our state.
