As the biggest plants on the planet, Trees give us oxygen, store carbon, stabilize the soil and give life to the world’s wildlife.

WHY TREES ARE VITAL

Air

Trees are effectively giant air filters. Trees absorb pollutant gases like nitrogen oxides, ozone, and carbon monoxide, and sweep up particles like dust and smoke. Healthy, strong trees act as carbon sinks; absorbing atmospheric carbon dioxide and reducing the effects of climate change.

Water

Trees play a key role in capturing rainwater and reducing the risk of natural disasters like floods and landslides. Their intricate root systems act like filters; removing pollutants and slowing down the water’s absorption into the ground. This process prevents harmful waterside erosion and reduces the risk of over-saturation and flooding. According to the Food and Agriculture Association of the United Nations, a mature evergreen tree can intercept more than 15,000 litres of water every year.

Climate Change

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. Fortunately, trees can absorb up to 150 kg of carbon dioxide per year, making cities a healthier, safer place to live.

Biodiversity

Forests are home to 80% of terrestrial biodiversity and house over two-thirds of known terrestrial species, including the largest share of threatened species.

Social Impact

Restoring forests, coupled with sustainable forest management, can help lift economies and provide business opportunities. Food-producing trees provide fruit, nuts, berries, and leaves for consumption by both humans and animals, and guarantee health and nutrition.

A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself. Forests arethe lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving freshstrength to ourpeople.

–Franklin D. Roosevelt
