WHY ARE TREES SO IMPORTANT TO THE ENVIRONMENT?
Healthy forests help absorb greenhouse gasses and carbon emissions that are caused by human civilization and contribute to global climate change.
Without trees and plants, more carbon and greenhouse gasses enter the atmosphere.
To make matters worse, trees actually become carbon sources when they are cut, burned or otherwise removed.
Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity.
Forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines.
Ever taken an aspirin? It comes from the bark of a tree!
