Why are trees so important?
Why are trees important?
As the biggest plants on the planet, they give us oxygen, store carbon, stabilise the soil and give life to the world's wildlife. They also provide us with the materials for tools and shelter.
How trees combat climate change
Trees are natural carbon capture and storage machines, absorbing carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere through photosynthesis then locking it up for centuries. It's why reforestation and afforestation are the key solutions to the climate crisis.
How do trees prevent drought
Trees bind the soil together through their roots, preventing soil erosion and seeping of the nutrients
How do trees remove pollution?
Trees remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and reduce the greenhouse gas effect, all while providing us with clean air to breathe. Trees become increasingly important in urban settings as they lend a hand with air pollution via their natural cycle of carbon absorption.
How do trees conserve energy
Trees help reduce your heating and cooling costs. Trees save energy through cooling in the hotter months, and provide a wind break during winter. This results in burning less fossil fuels to generate electricity for cooling and heating
Bees need trees and so do we
Bees need trees for food and shelter, the trees need the bees for pollination and we, as humans need bees for survival.
