Paper comes from pine or fir trees about 95% of the time. These days less than half the paper on the market doesn't incorporate some sort of recycling element, but there is still "virgin" paper on the market, so the numbers below are pulled from that data.
One tree produces about 16.67 reams of paper or about 8,335 sheets of standard business paper. One ream (500 sheets) uses about 6% of a standard "paper" tree.
1 ton of coated, higher-end virgin magazine paper (used for magazines like Vogue and many others) uses a little more than 15 trees (15.36). Using this measurement you will get about 1,100 magazines from 15 trees.
So one magazine consumes 1.3% of a tree. Ta da!
