Why Are Trees Good for the Environment?
As you are probably aware, pollution of the environment has become a serious issue
today. Trees are our greatest allies in fighting this climate change. Carbon emissions
are absorbed by trees and the oxygen we need to thrive is successfully filtered
out into the environment. Studies have shown that the more trees present, the
safer a neighborhood is. Towns with fewer trees tend to have higher crime
rates. Research has shown that over the course of one year, a full acre of
trees provides enough safe breathing air for up to 20 people. Trees will save
you and your family on energy consumption rates.
This is because the shade provided by trees will drastically reduce the temperature of anything in its coverage. Even from a spiritual standpoint, trees have always symbolized
health, growth, and life. Trees can bolster pride and unity amongst its
communities whether it’s through landmarks or simple organic beauty. Trees also
help prevent runoff and curbing or moving of soil in valuable land. This mostly
occurs on hills or inclines. In the United States the most common form of
cancer is Skin Cancer. Trees can prevent skin cancer by protecting our children
from harmful ultra violet rays.
