A FREE TREE
Many countries destroy the forests for business purposes such as woods, building shelters, etc.
We need to take a stand because global warming is knocking on the doors.
We should take a stand by recycling or reducing the amount of electricity we use daily
But one of the effective methods to regain balance to the natural environment is by growing trees.
Here are fun facts about trees:
• A single mature tree can release enough oxygen back into the atmosphere to support 2 human beings.
• A single tree will absorb one ton of carbon dioxide over its lifetime. Shade provided by trees can also reduce your air conditioning bill by 10 to 15 percent.
• It only takes 30 trees to offset the C02 produced by one car annually.
• There are about 20,000 tree species in the world. The United States has one of the largest tree treasuries second only to India
• Three trees planted in the right place around buildings can cut air-conditioning costs up to 50 percent.
• Trees improve water quality by slowing and filtering rain water as well as protecting aquifers and watersheds.
