‘Treelon’ Musk donates $1 million to #TeamTrees

Share

At the time of writing, Team Trees had already surpassed the $8 million donation mark, though it remains to be seen whether the well-intentioned movement will fizzle out, much like the Notre Dame Cathedral restoration pledge movement did.

After his donation, Musk took it upon himself to change his username on Twitter to "Treelon", because why not.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey also made a significant contribution to the campaign, donating 150,000 trees to the tree-planting cause.

The trees will reportedly be planted on every continent except Antarctica, and the kind of tree planted will be native to their surroundings.

He tweeted: "Just to be clear we all realize 20 million trees won't fix climate change". Yes, this will be a two-year tree-planting mission.

In a reply to a Twitter thread started by MrBeast, whose real name is Jimmy Donaldson, about the cause, Musk said it sounded "legit" and pledged money to plant 1 million trees.

Speaking of Trees, Elon's name actually means "oak tree" in Hebrew. I am not sure if that's just someone's username or the actual government of Ukraine. Angel numbers are repeating numbers like 111, 444, etc.

I think this is a lovely project, one I will contribute to as well, and this shows just how much we all matter. Donaldson tweeted, encouraging people to donate.

Tesla's CEO is the latest in a long line of internet celebrities to donate to the project. Imagine if 365 million people donated $1 each to plant a tree. We all love a little rivalry, and it would benefit the planet. Those trees are mostly being planted in "high need" forests and will be the appropriate tree for the area.

Rober thought to enlist the help of nonprofit conservation organization Arbor Day Foundation, and five months later, the partnership known as #TeamTrees has grown to include "basically every digital creator you can think of", according to Duchscher.
