Why Trees are Important
Air – Trees clean the air we breathe through their leaves and bark; they suck up harmful pollutants and release clean oxygen.
Water – Trees play a key role in capturing rainwater and reducing the risk of natural disasters like floods and landslides. They filter the water we drink.
Biodiversity – Trees provide habitat to over 80% of the world’s biodiversity.
Social Impact – Forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people. Sustainable tree farming provides timber to build homes and shelter, and wood to burn for cooking and heating.
Health – Trees help reduce stress, anxiety, and allow us to reconnect with nature.
Climate – Trees help cool the planet by sucking in and storing harmful greenhouse gases, like carbon dioxide, into their trunks, branches, and leaves, and releasing oxygen back into the atmosphere.
