Crowther and co-workers have counted all trees in the world using satellite images and counts on the ground together. They conclude that the number of trees is approximately 3.04 trillion (million million). This is a lot higher than previous estimates but the authors estimate that the total number of trees has diminished with 46% due to human action. Read the whole articles in Nature.
