WHY WE NEED TREES:

Trees provide food and shelter to birds and mammals

Trees produce oxygen and they clean the air

Trees shade and cool us

Trees provide humans with fruits and nuts

Trees provide windbreaks

Trees provide recreational fun areas (forests and parks), and branches
to hang swings and hammocks

Trees clean the soil by absorption

Trees soften noise pollution

Trees provide lumber to build homes and furniture

Trees help fight soil erosion

Trees beautify our cities and towns

Trees increase property values

Trees absorb air pollution –  Tree- of- heaven is one of the most effective trees for absorbing urban air pollution.
