Planting Trees to Help the Environment




National Arbor Day Foundation

 

What is the impact of planting trees?  Quite a lot. Consider ...

"One tree can absorb more than a ton of carbon over its lifetime."
Via:   U.S. Environmental Protection Agency  

"Trees reduce storm water runoff and erosion, and they remove harmful chemicals from the soil to prevent them from running into streams and rivers."
Via:    USDA Forest Service   


Impact of Planting Trees

Soil:  "Over the course of 50 years, a single tree can control $31,500 of soil erosion"

Air Pollution:  "Once acre of trees removes up to 2.6 tons of Carbon Dioxide each year"

Water:  "Trees improve water quality by slowing and filtering rain water as well as protecting aquifers and watersheds"

Oxygen: "Two mature trees can provide enough oxygen for a family of four.  One tree produces nearly 260 pounds of oxygen a year"
