Thanks, blackdog. I’m sure that there is some biological explanation of how they put everything together. I haven’t really done a lot to understand the total gist of the numbers. One would assume that they take known rates of consumption of air and water for a species of tree over a lifetime to figure the air and water stuff. Public safety is probably measured by a number of different variables including accident rates on roads where there is a median containing trees and roads without. The aesthetic appeal is probably more vague than what most people would want to dispute (air quality).

Oh, and I don’t know of one person that actually takes carbon credits seriously. To me this seems like a way for someone to do wrong then say sorry by throwing money at it. Not ethical at all.
