SAVE THEM TREESwhen a tree fall who's cutting them down
About Trees And Why We Need Them.
They cover about 30 percent of Earth's land surface, while accounting for 50 percent of plant productivity. As much as 45 percent of the carbon stored on land is tied up in forests. Forests cover 30 percent of the Earth's land.
acre of trees also produces enough oxygen for 18 people to breathe for a year." " A 100-ft tree, 18" diameter at its base, produces 6,000 pounds of oxygen." "On average, one tree produces nearly 260 pounds of oxygen each year. Two mature trees can provide enough oxygen for a family of four."
The most dramatic impact is a loss of habitat for millions of species. Eighty percent of Earth's land animals and plants live in forests, and many cannot survive the deforestation that destroys their homes. Deforestation also drives climate change.
Trees also play a critical role in absorbing the greenhouse gases that fuel global warming. Fewer forests means larger amounts of greenhouse gases entering the atmosphere—and increased speed and severity of global warming.
How Do We Prevent this?
The most feasible solution to deforestation is to carefully manage forest resources by eliminating clear-cutting to make sure forest environments remain intact. The cutting that does occur should be balanced by planting young trees to replace older trees felled. The number of new tree plantations is growing each year, but their total still equals a tiny fraction of the Earth’s forested land.
Use Less Paper And cardboard
this Might be the old but we need to recycle and not litter
these simple steps could help save our trees that do so much for us so instead of cutting trees down we should plant them
