Trees absorb CO2, which is one of the main drivers of climate change. Larger forests can even create clouds, which then reflect the sunlight and cool our planet.
Forests are the most diverse systems on land with millions of species out of which many have not even been discovered and analysed yet.
Trees protect the soil from erosion and they create productive and fertile land. If you cut down trees, you will very soon end up with a desert.
Trees create oxygen, which we need to breathe. They also clean the air by absorbing pollutant gases and filtering out particulates.
Forests provide us with healthy food and lots of other products, which can be sustainably harvested. Worldwide the livelihood of 1.6 billion people depends on forests.
Forests regulate the water cycles and prevent floods. They create moisturous microclimates and increase groundwater levels. They act like a “sponge” and therefore prevent droughts.
Trees mean a happy environment, healthy people and a strong economy
