Trees are Cool - They are The Best - Plant a Tree!

Our trees and forests are a wonderful free resource, even a short time being surrounded by trees is good for morale and raises spirits.

There are many benefits to having forests and trees; First that is where much of the air we breathe gets its oxgen content.Pretty important, I would say. Also our planet urgently needs to reduce levels of Carbon Dioxide and increasing tree cover can help. Every day in the life of a tree it will be consuming carbon, in it's lifetime a good-sized tree will have extracted over a ton of CO2.

Large scale planting of trees will help to slow rising air and sea temperatures. Rising sea levels. too, need to halted it can stop and even reverse the loss of fertile land to encroaching deserts, trees planted upstream of land affected by flooding can be less seriously affected. The severity and frequency of forest fires is a function of global heating which can be fixed by growing more trees.

We all need to do our bit to ensure that the next generation of earthdwellers still have trees and forests (and as a result air to breathe).

So plant a tree, get your friends and family to plant a tree. Plant ten trees, plant a thousand trees, plant a million trees, a billion? why not let's plant the two trillion trees plus that the planet needs.

It is a duty that we inform our children just how critically important are the trees and the benefits of restoring woodland everywhere.

Action is an Imperative.

I need Oxygen, you need Oxygen, we all need Oxygen. In addition to supplying the oxygen to keep us alive, a mature tree will 'soak up' something we have far too much of; carbon dioxide, believe it or not, trees can help fix this as well. Lets increase the number of trees on our planet. Planting an additional two trillion would be a good starting point. Planting trees and protecting and restoring forests, along with other measures, can halt and reverse Global Warming - How is this to be done?  - Can You help? - Let's all set aside some time to join with others in restoring forests and woodland Our survival could depend on learning to cherish our trees. We can all do some or all of the following:-

Along with other measures we can halt and reverse Global Heating!
  • Plant a tree in your garden, or somewhere where it is likely to survive to maturity
  • Join a group of volunteers working to protect trees and forests.
  • Remove or replace invasive species and aggressive weeds on the forest floor, also damaging vines and excess ivy.
  • Purchase Offsets that result in tree planting.
