Tree planting aids conservation work, improves soil, air and water, provides shelter and medicine, and helps to alleviate poverty and hunger. Trees are planted in the USA and around the World.
The Benefits of Planting Trees
FACT: 80,000 acres of forest disappears from the Earth every day!
Planting trees are not only good for the environment, but they can provide fruit, nuts and berries making them an invaluable source of food and nutrition. For some of the poorest communities in the world, trees can alleviate hunger and nutritional deficiencies.
Trees capture rainfall, in fact, more than half the water in the ecosystem is held within plants and trees. In addition, their roots act as natural filters removing pollutants and playing a key role in purifying our water.
300 million people and over 70% of the world’s plants and animals live in forests. Wood of course is needed to build homes.
Trees absorb carbon dioxide and potentially harmful gasses from the air and releases oxygen.
As well as absorbing harmful gases and pollutants, trees also help to block the sun’s rays during the day and hold in heat at night. Without trees we would experience more extreme temperatures and climate. In Cities, trees can reduce overall temperature by up to eight degrees Celsius.
Without tree roots to anchor the soil and with increased exposure to the sun, the soil can dry out. This can lead to problems like increased flooding and the inability to farm.
Arborists, loggers, carpenters and researchers are just some of the jobs provided by the forestry industry. 1.6 billion people rely on trees to provide an income. A single fruit tree could provide sustainable food and income for over 50 years.
121+ natural remedies in the rainforest can be used as medicine.
Trees help to reduce stress and allow us to reconnect with nature. Also, shade provided by tree coverage helps protect our skin from the ever-increasing harshness of the sun.
