Reasons to Plant Trees.
- Trees replenish our oxygen, filter out air pollution and contribute to better mental health and well-being.
- Trees are vital for the water we drink, help cool our cities and towns, and are home to many species of plant, birds and wildlife.
- Scientific research shows that forests and green spaces lead to signicant declines in stress, improved rehabilitation, faster hospital recovery rates and a decrease in the severity of symptoms in attention decit disorders.
- Trees sequester (trap) carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere. They do this during photosynthesis to form carbohydrates that are used in plant structure/function and return oxygen back to the atmosphere as a by product.
