That began the #TeamTrees Challenge. Anyone can donate $1 to plant one tree.

The trees are being planted on every continent except Antarctica and the kind of trees planted depends where they are planted. Arbor Day plants trees that are native to their surroundings :) https://t.co/W2ItuwU418— MrBeast (@MrBeastYT) October 28, 2019
Ok, sounds legit, will donate 1M trees— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) October 29, 2019
The internet is, rightfully psyched.
It is now illegal to not drive a Tesla, sorry but Elon planted a million trees so all other cars are now obsolete.— MrBeast (@MrBeastYT) October 29, 2019
