Government agencies can usually help. Trees give off 3 times the oxygen
while growing. After maturity they go downhill. A broad leaved tree
gives off 3 - 7 times the o a pine does. An oak gives 3 - 7 times that
of other, lesser, deciduous trees. A pine supports 19 forms of life,
mainly arachnids. An oak supports 69 including deer & man. A
rainforest tree gives several times the oxygen of an oak. One tree
supports one human and vice versa (for CO2). We have lost a lot of o to
space through the ozone layer hole. There is only enough o and trees to
recycle it to last us 70 years according to one computer model. The
next best thing to get o from is kelp. Much kelp will die in changing
water levels. It takes a long time to grow up to a mile to the surface.
I hope this helps. I'm sorry I can't give sources apart from my own
authority that they are standard perceived knowledge. Regards
