Environmental benefits of planting trees
- Trees offer many environmental benefits.
- Firstly they improve our air quality by filtering harmful dust and pollutants such as, carbon monoxide, and sulfur dioxide from the air we breathe.
- In addition trees give off oxygen that we need to breathe.
- Above all many species of wildlife depend on trees for habitat.
Trees improve soil quality
Secondly when it comes to agriculture, trees play a vital role. Furthermore they improve fertility, reduce soil erosion, and give soil more moisture. In addition Fallen tree leaves also turn into valuable nutrients for tree growth, and support microorganism development.
Trees help to fight the climate crisis
But one of their best qualities is their ability to act like sponges for carbon.
They absorb carbon by removing it from the air and locking it in their wood and roots. They can do so for decades, or even centuries. Finally a single tree can absorb as much as 22kg of carbon each year. It can lock away 1 ton by the time it reaches the age of 40.
In conclusion planting trees are good for us, animals and the environment. Support Homeland by visiting one of the stores listed above and pick up your Free tree. If you have any questions please get in touch via our contact page.
