- There are numerous reasons why we should plant more trees, and one of those reasons is that trees are so crucial.
- #1 The roots of trees anchor the earth in place.
- The roots of trees extend very deeply into the ground, so firmly anchoring the soil and assisting in the prevention of soil erosion, particularly when the trees are grown on slopes or other types of steep terrain.
#2 Trees trap carbon dioxide
- The oxygen that we breathe in must come from the trees around us.
- Trees cut down on the amount of storm water runoff, which in turn cuts down on the amount of erosion and pollution in our rivers and may cut down on the consequences of flooding.
- Trees provide shelter and food for a wide variety of animal species.
Numerous species of birds and animals rely on trees as a source of food, protection, and a habitat.
What are the benefits of planting trees?
- It’s possible that when you plant trees, you just have one or two specific aims in mind, such as luring birds to your garden, providing vibrant fall color, or making a shaded location.
- Regardless of the motivation, planting trees in our communities has a wide range of positive effects on all of us.
- Our message is crystal clear when it comes to the issue of climate change: planting native forests and trees is one of the most effective strategies to combat the climate problem.
Why plant tree seedlings?
When natural disasters like wildfires, insects, or diseases strike our National Forests, planting seedlings in a timely manner helps accelerate the healing process for the forests. Planting trees in areas that have been disturbed and to help restore native species is beneficial to both us and our forests in many ways, including the following:
Why are forests so important?
Forests are essential to the production of over 1.6 billion jobs worldwide, the removal of damaging carbon dioxide from the environment, and the production of almost a quarter of the world’s pharmaceuticals. Have you ever taken an Aspirin? It originates from the outer layer of tree bark! The air we breathe is made healthier in part by the presence of trees.
Do trees make a difference to the environment?
- Here are some of the ways in which trees make a difference: By exhaling oxygen into the atmosphere, trees make the environment healthier.
- They act as a buffer against the damaging effects of the heat and wind, and they purify the air by capturing dust, pollen, and other airborne contaminants.
- When they are placed strategically around buildings, trees have the potential to greatly cut down on the expenses of air conditioning.
