What kind of world are we leaving our children?
People love sustainability. This trend is coming more and more in the near future. That is why we plant trees. So far, there are already 34 of them and more and more. Every contribution counts.
Trees are important for our planet. As the green lungs of the earth, they convert carbon dioxide into oxygen and thus improve our climate. At the same time, they bind a lot of harmful greenhouse gases. For one cubic metre of wood, a tree consumes about one tonne of CO2.
Trees are more than oxygen producers
Did you know that trees are nature's air filters? With their leaves and needles, each tree removes up to 100 kilos of dust from the air. Rain washes the dust to the ground and returns it to the earth. Soil erosion is prevented and land mass is preserved.
Trees are also important to prevent the topsoil from drying out. Their large treetops provide a lot of shade and a single tree evaporates up to 500 litres of water per day. It thus acts like a huge natural air-conditioning system. This creates a protected habitat for many plants and animals at its feet.
But life is not only to be found under the tree, insects, birds and other animals also find food and a home in and on the tree itself.
Last but not least, the wood of trees is a great and environmentally friendly material and also an energy supplier. Wood is climate-neutral, because when we burn it, only the CO2 is released that the tree had previously absorbed.
