Why Do You Save and Plant Trees Instead of Doing Something Else?
Simply put, trees are the superheros of planet Earth. While their environmental positives are well known, they also help to support countless species of plant and animal life in some of the planet’s most diverse ecosystems.
Most people are aware that saving and planting trees is an excellent way to support the environment. In fact, they are the most efficient consumers of carbon dioxide (carbon sinks) on the planet.
Each and every year, one acre of trees absorbs around six tons of carbon dioxide from the environment.
Furthermore, trees help to fight climate change, invigorate natural water cycles, mitigate the spread of deserts, and revitalize “unusable” areas into fertile farmlands and woods. By conserving existing trees and planting new ones, we can reverse this habitat destruction almost immediately, giving these animals a new chance at life. From the lemurs in Madagascar to the jaguars in the Amazon–we choose to stand against human destruction of wildlife habitats.
