The Environmental Benefits of Tree Planting
Trees take many years of growth to mature and are a symbol of the continuance of life that benefits the Earth, acting as silent sentinels in nature's plan. Trees and forests play a valuable role in the socioeconomic and environmental health of our communities - past, present, and future.
Trees ensure quality air by removing excess carbon, a greenhouse gas, from the atmosphere. Trees then turn this carbon into the oxygen we breathe.
Over the course of 50 years, a single tree can generate $31,250 of oxygen, provide $62,000 worth of air pollution control, recycle $37,500 worth of water, and control $31,500 worth of soil erosion.
Removing harmful greenhouse gasses contributes to a lower carbon economy. This helps reduce the harmful effects of climate change.
Trees are a major part of healthy ecosystem, providing habitat and food for a variety of wildlife.
Trees increase groundwater recharge and reduce the number of potentially harmful chemicals transported to our waterways which purifies our water.
The root systems of trees help stabilize soil and can significantly reduce soil erosion.
