# How many trees are there in the rain forest?

According to wikipedia, - the amazon rain forest has a size of approximately 5000000 square kilometers (21 million square miles). and - one square kilometer (247 acres) of Amazon rainforest can contain about 90,790 metric tonnes of living plants.

Let's assume that 70% of rainforest plant mass are trees and the rest is shrubbery. Let's assume that a typical large rainforest tree, including all leaves and branches weighs 10 metric tons. 70% of 90790 is 63553. Divided by 10 is 6355 round down. So we'd have 6355 trees on one square kilometer. That would be 31776500000 trees on 5000000 square kilometers.

Oh i see, well the Amazon rainforest is located in brazil, it is the largest rainforest in the world so i doubt anyone would know but in a hectare there is around 900 tonnes of plant matter, these include 750 types of trees and 1,500 other plants. There is around 62 million hectares therefore you would need to do some math's.

the simple awnser: WAY to many to count evan thir estimate of trees there cant be an estimate..to many are being reborn and dieing every second
