  1. Trees are like the lungs of the planet. They breathe in carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen. Additionally, they provide habitat for birds and other wildlife. But that’s not all trees do for us! To see just how much trees are essential to the planet and to humans, let’s look at the following statistics:

    CO2 is one of the major contributing elements to the greenhouse effect. Trees trap CO2 from the atmosphere and make carbohydrates that are used for plant growth. They give us oxygen in return. Trees also help to reduce ozone levels in urban areas. Trees also absorb sound and reduce noise pollution. This is especially important for people who live near freeways. In some cases, a well planted group of trees can reduce noise pollution
    Social and Environmental benefits of trees are they removing Carbon Dioxide and trees improve our health by improving air quality. They may also improve the quality of life for people by improving the visual quality of the landscape. Other benefits could be supporting, enhancing biodiversity and provide opportunities for recreation and renewable source of energy. Trees will help us to save energy by planting trees can also help cool our house in the summer and In the winter, trees can act as windbreaks for your home and will help you save on heating costs.
    Removal of other air pollution – Trees also remove other major air pollutants including Sulphur Dioxide, Ozone, Nitrogen Oxide and particulates that cause respiratory problems. Trees release oxygen into the atmosphere as part of their photosynthesis process.
