From the air we breathe and we food we eat, to providing the ecological habitat to over 80% of our planet's species, trees are essential to the well-being of every living entity on Earth.
Trees act as air purifiers, working to eliminate pollutants and provide us with clean breathable oxygen. Not only do they reduce our carbon footprint - breathing in CO2 gases - but also trap toxic gases like nitrogen oxides, ammonia, sulfur dioxide and ozone on their leaves and bark.
Saving Water: While global warming has contributed greatly to the growing droughts throughout the globe, trees have been a vital part in reducing water usage. Tree canopies drastically reduce water evaporation, retaining moisture in the areas they surround.
Water Pollution: The farther that rainfall flows, the dirtier it becomes, picking up waste and other toxins. Trees reduce runoff by breaking rainfall and reducing the pollutants that flow into our oceans. Acting like sponges, trees absorb these contaminants and naturally filter our water.
