WHY PLANT

Trees are engines of economic development

  • High nutrition foods for humans, animals, wildlife and insects
  • Sustainable building materials and fuel
  • Canopies in urban areas to cool, reduce energy use, absorb pollution and increase property values

Trees protect our environment

  • Increase ground water recharge, prevent runoff and loss of soil
  • Create habitat for wildlife
  • Produce oxygen, use carbon dioxide, improve public health
  • Slow global warming by storing carbon

Trees and woodlands provide spiritual renewal and life

  • Walking in the woods stimulates the mind and soothes the soul
  • Trees and woodlands provide homes for birds, and many other species
