Mr Beast, otherwise known as Jimmy Donaldson, is a 21 year old American YouTuber and philanthropist who, back in May 2019, set in motion a global online initiative which has so far resulted in 16 million new trees being planted. Team Trees’ target is to get 20 million new saplings in the ground by January 1st 2020. And it’s just as well, because the European Union (including the United Kingdom!) is busy destroying millions of trees across the south-eastern United States as a result of it’s rapacious desire for the deceptively marketed ‘sustainable’ fuel source that we all know as wood pellets. This week we investigate what’s going on.
