How we make an impact by planting trees around the world 🌳
Planting trees has many benefits for the environment, society, and individuals. Some of the key benefits of planting trees include:
Improved air quality: Trees absorb carbon dioxide (CO2) and other pollutants from the air through the process of photosynthesis, and release oxygen back into the air. This helps to improve air quality and provide a source of oxygen for all living beings.
Climate change mitigation: Trees help to combat global warming by removing CO2 from the atmosphere and reducing the heat island effect in urban areas. This can help to offset the warming effects of greenhouse gases and slow the pace of climate change.
Improved mental and physical health: Trees can have a positive impact on mental and physical health. They can provide a sense of calm and relaxation, and can also support physical activity by providing a natural environment for walking, running, and other outdoor activities.
Biodiversity conservation: Trees provide habitat and food for a wide variety of plants and animals, supporting biodiversity and helping to preserve the Earth's ecosystems. Planting trees can help to support the survival and growth of many species, and can help to protect the planet's natural resources.
