The benefits of having trees (part 1)
Trees Defend Against the Greenhouse Effect: All the talk of global warming is real. It’s caused by the use of fossil fuels which become trapped in the earth’s atmosphere. When the sun’s rays hit these gasses, it causes temperatures to rise. One of these greenhouse gasses is CO2. This is absorbed by trees, therefore deducting the greenhouse effect.
Trees Clean the Air: Trees not only absorb pollutants, they also trap these particles within their bark and leaves.
Trees Provide Oxygen: Trees pump out fresh oxygen for people which we need to breathe.
Trees Cool the Streets: By releasing water vapor into the streets,trees are able to keep temperatures cooler than they usually would be.
Trees Conserve Energy: Have you seen your cooling bill in the summer? It’s high enough but guess what? It could probably be much higher without the presence of trees around your home. Did you know that by placing trees strategically around your property, you can cut the energy bill by as much as 50%?
Trees Save Water: Shade is a very important thing. It actually prevents water from being evaporated too quickly. Lawns that require water may not need it as quickly as usual due to the shade.
Trees Prevent Pollution of Water: Pollutants in the air, mixed into rainfall hit the bark of the tree and then rundown into it’s roots being absorbed. This greatly reduces runoff and the chances of water pollution from directly occurring.
