# How many trees does it take to make one newspaper?

**2 Answers**

It takes 12 trees to make one ton of 100 percent non-recycled newsprint. It would take a little more than half a tree to make a carton (10 reams) of 100 percent, non-recycled 20-lb. copier paper. One tree makes 16.67 reams of copy paper, or 8,333.3 sheets.

It takes 24 trees to make one ton of paper, which is about 200,000 sheets.
