How many Trees … ?

Serious question…

no, really!! How many trees does it take to create 1000 sheets of paper?

And if you want to be really pedantic, 1000 ish recycled paper, 3 sheets of card and one large brown envelope.

One side effect of applying for all these grants for our Community Church project is that we end up using rather a lot of paper in the process. Only some organisations will allow an electronic application…

I plan to plant some trees to cover the carbon cost, but how many?? and what type!!
