Importance of Trees

How many childhood memories are included in your backyard or a group of trees on which you used to play ? Back in India , I remember the way we used to play in the backyard , pluck fruits and flowers from trees and eat them as a reward of our "hard work".

Trees help to record your family history as they grow and develop with you and your children. We often form an emotional connection to the trees we plant we see every day. There is evidence of these strong ties by hundreds of groups and organizations across the country who try their best to protect trees, especially large or historic trees, from the dangers of modern development. The sentimental value of a particular tree is simply unfathomable.

Trees are vital , valuable and necessary for our survival because they have provided us with two essential elements for life; Food and Oxygen. Apart from keeping us alive, there are many other small and great benefits that we get from trees. Therefore trees are important resources for the survival of all living things. Hence , governments and many organizations throughout the world are taking steps to prevent deforestation and count the benefits of planting trees.

Trees improve air quality by acting as natural air filters that expel dust, smoke, and smoke from the atmosphere by trapping them in leaves, branches and trunks. Only 1 hectare of forest can extract 4 tons of dust per year from the atmosphere. The trees cut back the 'greenhouse' result by removing the greenhouse gas from the air and the laxative chemical element. Every year, one mature tree produces enough oxygen for 10 people. According to the US Department of Agriculture. United States, "One acre of forest absorbs six tons of carbon dioxide and emits four tons of oxygen. This is sufficient to meet the annual needs of 18 people

Trees are also an effective noise inhibitor and can limit noise pollution. Recent research suggests that trees also help reduce the stress of modern life. Trees in themselves benefit the environment and landscape, but are also an integral part of the ecosystem that provides benefits for wildlife and biodiversity. Trees, especially older ones and in those groups or forests, provide habitat for native soil flora, such as bluebells and fauna, especially bats, red squirrels, and invertebrates. Planting trees and caring for mature trees can make it a great place to live, work, learn and relax.

Trees contribute to their environment by providing oxygen, improving climate, conserving water, conserving soil and supporting wildlife. During the photosynthesis process, trees absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen that we breathe.. Trees, shrubs and grasses also filter the air by removing dust and absorbing other pollutants such as carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide. After intercepting unhealthy particles of trees, rain takes them to the ground.

Trees control the climate by controlling the effects of sun, rain and wind. The leaves absorb and filter radiant energy from the sun to keep things cool in summer. Trees also maintain heat by providing a strong wind screen. In addition to affecting wind speed and direction, they protect us from rain, sleep and hail. Trees reduce air temperature and reduce the intensity of greenhouse heat by lowering carbon dioxide levels.

Both above and below ground, trees are essential to the ecosystem in which they reside. Long-distance roots capture soil and fight erosion. Trees absorb and store rain water which reduces runoff and sediment deposition after storms. It helps recharge the groundwater supply, prevents the flow of chemicals into the flow, and prevents flooding. Fallen leaves are an excellent compost that enriches the soil.

Many animals, including elephants, cuckoos and giraffes, eat leaves to feed. Monkeys eat flowers, and nectar is a favorite with birds, bats, and many insects. Animals also eat the same fruit that we enjoy. This process helps the seeds to spread over great distances. Of course, many living beings decide trees in their home. Leaf-covered branches keep many animals, such as birds and squirrels, out of the reach of predators.

The main reason for liking trees is that they are beautiful and majestic. No two are alike. Different species appear to be of vibrant shape, form, texture and color. Even individual trees change throughout the year. The strength, long life span and actual height of the trees give them a monumental quality.

Most of us react to the presence of trees with a pleasant, relaxed and comfortable feeling. In fact, many people plant trees as memorials for life-changing events.

To enhance the greenery around my surroundings , my family and I have grown a lot of flowering plants in the balcony in small pots like roses, marigold plants etc. We have also grown coriander, some tomatoes, chickpeas, green chili etc. I was so happy to see them growing .We water them every day. I have some indoor plants like money plant , bamboo plants, etc . Indoor plants improve the air quality of interior spaces. The presence of plants increases wellbeing among our family . It fills the surrounding with clean fresh air.

Trees are very important in our lives and provide an ideal service for the environment. We have not protected them in any way and perhaps that is why today we are being affected by global warming, severe pollution and other harmful effects of deforestation. Trees must be treated and looked after very well to survive on this planet. We should encourage others to plant more and more trees. This is for our own improvement and the sooner we understand it, the better it will be for us.
