Tree planting is the process of planting tree seedlings generally for forestry, land reclamation or landscaping purposes. Trees are very important to the livelihood of mankind. Basically, it has been referred to as the main surviving tool of humans. During photosynthesis, trees take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen in its place. By planting trees, it enriches people’s lives and beautifies landscapes, provides benefits, and adds value to developments.
Reduction of Climate Change
Trees are humans’ main surviving tools. Harmful carbon dioxide that has been released into the air causes harmful effects on the human body system. However, the planting of trees is very helpful for reducing climate change, which is a major problem the world has to deal with currently. Trees contribute to their environment by providing us with oxygen, moderating the temperature of the surrounding area, improving air quality, limiting soil erosion, conserving water, and supporting wildlife. Trees can affect the climate of the immediate area by moderating the effects of the sun, wind, and rain.
Trees help in purifying the air, they absorb pollutant gases such as nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxide. Trees absorb odor through leaves. Trees also help in saving water through the provision of shade. According to the UN Food and Agriculture Association, a mature evergreen tree can intercept more than 15,000 liters of water every year. Tree planting also preserves water pollution by filtering storm water which is full of phosphorus pollutants and nitrogen. Without the presence of trees, storm water would flow into the oceans without getting filtered and this would cause harmful effects to the aquatic life and even human beings.
Renewable Source of Energy
One of the biggest problems of the world right now is fossil fuels. The plantation of trees can later offset fossil fuel emissions. Trees act in various ways of helping agriculture, either by helping to maintain soil moisture, and also reducing soil erosion.
Personal Benefits and Aesthetics
Trees are beautiful, holy and majestic. It helps to record the history of the family as they grow and develop alongside you and your kids. People often make an emotional and mental connection with trees they plant or become personally attached to the ones that we see every day. Often times, people mark a tree as for a memorable event and year. The planting of trees also provides the beautification of the ambience and enhance tranquility. Also, trees give shade for friends and family during hangouts. Tree planting also serves the process of adding value to your property rather than one with no trees. However, this means that properties with trees are often 20% higher than the ones without and in addition, they quickly sell before the other one. Cooling costs are reduced in a tree-shaded home, and heating costs lowered when a tree serves as a windbreak. Also, trees grown in proximity to buildings can provide shade and reduce the need for air conditioning by up to 30%, slashing energy usage and saving building owners money.
