Elon Musk promised to donate one million trees to #TeamTrees, a campaign started by YouTuber Jimmy Donaldson, otherwise known as "MrBeast."




The tech giant caught wind of the campaign on Monday, replying to Donaldson's tweet calling the campaign "cool" and inquiring "where are the trees being planted" and "what kind of trees." Upon explanation, Musk responded in the thread: "Ok, sounds legit, will donate 1M trees."




Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey also made a significant contribution to the campaign following Musk, donating 150,000 trees to the tree-planting cause. YouTube is also planning on matching the next million dollars donated to TeamTrees through the YouTube donate button, Donaldson wrote in a tweet.




According to the campaign's website, one dollar is equivalent to one tree, and each tree will be "planted in a variety of forests on public and private lands in areas of great need."
