Why should we plant more trees? Planting trees is one of the easiest and most sustainable ways to positively affect the environment. We need trees now more than ever! Trees are our lifeline to cleaner air and a healthier environment.
Lack Of Trees Could Be The Reason For Global Warming
Trees and global warming are more connected than most people think. Trees can mitigate the effects of global warming by reducing the impact of climate change on man, and at the same time, global warming can reduce the efficiency of trees to store carbon dioxide which can ultimately lead to plants being less reliable in food and oxygen production. According to scientists, the rapid rate of clearing out forests is also acting as a catalyst for global warming.
