Congratulations PressDisplay.com subscribers!
Thanks to your commitment and willingness to go green, you’ve now successfully helped save over 100,000 trees by reading your favorite daily newspapers online in full digital replica format or downloaded to your favorite mobile device, tablet or eReader.
Let’s quickly put this great achievement into perspective.
Typically, forests contain approximately 200 mature trees per acre, meaning PressDisplay’s 100,000 saved trees translates into roughly 500 acres of forest preserved. That’s almost as large as New York’s Central Park OR half of Stanley Park in beautiful Vancouver, BC. Incredible!

At the start of 2009, PressDisplay’s “Trees Saved” counter was just over 42,000. That’s an additional 58,000 trees saved in a little more than a year and half! With more and more great ways to enjoy PressDisplay’s 1,500+ international titles on so many new devices, we’re confident that next year will see that number rise at an even faster rate.
Keep reading and kudos for doing your part!
