Two critical problems facing the USA and the world are huge population and its continuing growth, and mass destruction of trees for short term uses. We present these problems and urge that a campaign be adopted to grow less children and to grow more trees.

Key words: Huge population and its continuing growth, trees, lean nation, grow more trees, grow less children, Murty's law on pollution, peace for humans and extinction for other species.
