A mature canopy tree absorbs enough carbon and releases enough oxygen
to sustain two human beings.
Helps in restoring the earth through water saving, fertilizing the
soil, minimising soil erosion, removing pollutants and combatting climate change.
Trees also contribute to boosting biodiversity as they become a food
source and natural habitat for wildlife. The fruit they produce can
nourish many birds, bees, insects, and wildlife. Excellent urban
homes for birds, bees and squirrels.
Trees also help to save water because of the shade they provide,
water will evaporate slowly from lower vegetation. Trees play a key
role in capturing rainwater and reducing the risk of natural
disasters like floods and landslides.
Trees absorb odors and pollutant gases (nitrogen oxides, ammonia,
sulfur dioxide and ozone) and filter particulates out of the air by
trapping them on their leaves and bark.
Trees are the best source of carbon sequestration, helping to remove
carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases from the air and in turn
cools the earth. Planting trees is possibly the cheapest and most
effective way to fight Climate Change.
