A tree produces oxygen using photosynthesis phenomenon. It converts water and carbon dioxide into enough oxygen which can easily supply oxygen for two people for one whole year.
Helps against Climate Change
In order to grow, a tree spends its lifetime absorbing carbon dioxide. With an average consumption of 10 kg of carbon dioxide a year, trees help in reducing the amount of carbon in the atmosphere which causes the climate change.
Improves the Quality of Water
A tree filters and recycles rainwater through its roots and leaves, and converts it into purified water. This 100% natural process is essential for restocking process and to ensure stability of groundwater levels.
Tree roots are essential for preventing landslides by holding the ground and fighting erosion, especially near riverbanks, slopes and mountains. In arid countries, trees form a natural barrier against desert progression.
Protects against Heat
Using the process of evapotranspiration, a tree releases humidity in the surroundings which changes the humidity levels in the atmosphere and regulates the temperature.
Trees and forests host, feed and shelter 80% of all terrestrial animal species. They provide food (fruit, nuts, mushrooms, etc), firewood, timber and even medication to over 1.6 billion people.
