WHY DO WE NEED TREES?

Article done 2017

We literary couldn’t survive without trees!

  • Humans and animals inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide
  • Trees and other plants inhale carbon dioxide and exhale oxygen

 

So Trees, through their leaves, take in carbon dioxide from the air, use it to make the sugar that is their food, and release gases they don’t use back through their leaves- OXYGEN!

This process called ‘Photosynthesis’ is the most important chemical reaction occurring on Earth!

 

By cutting down trees, we are literary destroying the existence of life on Earth!

 

What is Global Warming?

Global Warming is the increase of Earth's average surface temperature due to effect of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide, CFCs and other pollutant, emissions from burning fossil fuels and from deforestation, which trap heat that would otherwise escape from Earth. This is a type of greenhouse effect.

By increasing the heat in the atmosphere, greenhouse gases are responsible for the greenhouse effect, which ultimately leads to global warming.

 

So… why do we need trees?

  • Trees Produce Oxygen

  • Trees Clean the Soil

  • Trees Control Noise Pollution

  • Trees Are Carbon Sinks

  • Trees Clean the Air

  • Trees Shade and Cool

  • Trees Act as Windbreaks

  • Trees Fight Soil Erosion

  • Trees Increase Property Values

  •  And of course, wood, humans need in many other ways as well as providing ingredients for drugs that fight disease and illness.  Oh and what about foods like nuts and fruit and not forgetting flowers…
