Trees protect us
Trees provide shade and shelter, create cooler micro-climates, absorb rainfall and help stop soil erosion.
Trees provide for us
They provide food, fuel and timber for us. They improve air quality and reduce noise pollution, making places more pleasant to live in. They provide calm and relaxation away from daily stresses.
Trees offer potential solutions to the issues we face today. The mass planting of trees will help lock up carbon and reduce the effects of climate change.
Trees (and the habitats they create) support a huge and diverse range of animals and plant species – our biodiversity. Without trees, they could be lost forever.
