I don't have the numbers here in front of me but you would have to plant 
new forest over approx 1/3 of N. America to account for the CO2 being 
released there from fossil fuels EVERY YEAR.  And what do you do once 
the trees have sequestered all the CO2?  They can not be burned or 
allowed to decompose or you have made no gain whatsoever.
