Vegetables, plants, they love CO2. They require it for photosynthesis. And so with higher concentrations of CO2 within the greenhouse, the better those plants can grow. This particular greenhouse has seen an increased crop yield of 20 per cent.
In North America we grow many more trees than we harvest. Forest area in the U.S. increased by 5,800 NFL football fields per day between 2007 and 2012, or a total of 14 million acres.[ii] In Canada, the forest cover has remained stable over the last two decades and, in recent years, Canada’s actual harvest has been 44% of annual growth.[iii]
6. Black walnut. Walnut trees, like chestnuts, produce a double income, as the nuts can be harvested as the trees are growing to harvestable size for timber. Growers often call black walnut a “legacy tree” because it takes about 30 years to reach it’s prime harvesting size of about 16 inches or so for a veneer log. Along the way, the walnut stand can be thinned to provide income, but the real payoff comes at harvest, as veneer logs bring between $4,000 and $5,000 each. An average stand of black walnut is 250 trees per acre, or $125,000 at harvest time, quite a legacy for the kids or grandkids!
Let’s hear some more about answering OP’s questions!!
It's already proven to be economically feasible to grow trees for paper production.

Trees don't grow fast enough. Maybe (huge maybe) plankton might do a small dent but there have been years of industrial pollution pumped into the atmosphere. Add to it deforestation which leads to temperature increase which leads to stress against forest growth...
Sorry but trees are not the answer. I will accept industrial hemp over trees because they grow faster.
Love ya, buddy, but you didn’t answer the question: How do we help?
My answer is technology.
We all know that the Earth would better off without us but how do we help it recover??
