Important Benefits of TREES – Time to change now! – Please Share
I am writing this article as I believe we as humans need to wake up to the benefits of trees and the environment! I will keep it very simple, lets change this world together.
This week I watched a David Edinburgh documentary about Africa, I was shocked to hear the devastation caused to the wildlife and the environment in Africa! In fact Congo still reserves 50% of it forest for logging!! Can you believe it!! This is crazy because the ENTIRE planet relies on the Congo forest to supply rain water to our lands!!! This is not the only major forest at threat!
What are you going to do to help the planet survive for future generations?
“We abuse the land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.”
~ Aldo Leopold
Why we need trees?
- They create ecosystem for animals to live
- No trees no water
- No trees the soil breaks down and the sun dries it out and the wind blows it away
- Trees create rain by storing water
- Trees cool down the planet, without them the planet will continue to increase in temp
- Trees prevent washing away of soil
- Trees clean our air
Trees contribute to their environment by providing oxygen, improving air quality, climate amelioration, conserving water, preserving soil, and supporting wildlife. During the process of photosynthesis, trees take in carbon dioxide and produce the oxygen we breathe. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, “One acre of forest absorbs six tons of carbon dioxide and puts out four tons of oxygen. This is enough to meet the annual needs of 18 people.” Trees, shrubs and turf also filter air by removing dust and absorbing other pollutants like carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide. After trees intercept unhealthy particles, rain washes them to the ground. – See more at: http://www.savatree.com/whytrees.html#sthash.6pfSHFth.dpuf
We should be prepared for the wildest storms we can imagine if we don’t start planting trees now!! Be prepared to be shaken to your very core of existence! We humans have disrupted the planet for way to long…. You choose.. Plant or not to plant….. I am planting now!

In Australia I believe we need to wake up and STOP clearing land for FARMING!! I can’t believe in 2016 we are still clearing land for farming in Australia or anywhere in fact! Mass producing of agriculture is dead!! Wake up and plant a tree!! Don’t kill the trees farmers!!
Famers its time to wake up that the way you farm is changing!! New indoor farming is revolutionising the world!! Wake up!! You are destroying our lands by MASS clearing!!!
This will be the first of many articles from me about the environment! I have joined the Wilderness society and I will be furthing my education to help communities fight corporations and governments to protect our LANDS!! Lets rise together!!
Power to the people!!
