Save The Environment By Planting Trees


We Give You Information About How You Can Save The Environment By Planting Trees

If we look at yearly figures, roughly three and six billion trees are being felled all over the world. This has to do with the demand for goods that are made from trees. Such as timber to construct homes, paper for writing on and even toilet paper for, well you know. Alas, we need the goods that the trees produce but we can do something about the depletion of our forests.

Although we have Arbor Day, and all of us must plant a tree every Arbor Day, that is simply taking care of a small part of the problem. Planting trees is not an undertaking that most folks give any thought to. If each one of us could do our part and plant a tree, it would make a big difference.

There are roughly seven billion people in the world now. The actual numbers obviously fluctuate and so this is a calculated approximation. But then, if each of those 7 billion folks went out and planted a tree every Arbor Day, we would be replacing all the trees that were dropped that year. Unfortunately, this is never going to come about.

And so, the answer is for those of you who care about our planet and want oxygen so you can live, plant a tree. And I don’t mean to only go out once a year and plant a tree. Planting a tree monthly is a good target or why not weekly? The reason is because someone must compensate for all the people are using our resources but don’t want to plant a tree for whatever reason.

Would you believe that on Arbor Day, only approximately 8 and 15 million trees are planted? That still comes out to a 5 billion tree shortfall each and every year. And yearly, it only keeps getting worse.

I actually have a solution to the problem entirely even though individuals should nevertheless go on planting trees whenever they can. What could truly take care of this problem is if every wood company or tree farmer, by law, had to plant two saplings for each tree they chop down, so our tree issue wouldn’t be an issue any longer.

But until someone can turn this into reality, we are left to take care of replacing the trees ourselves. In actual fact, restoring the amount of trees required is definitely doable. If each and every month, roughly 10% of people in the world could plant a tree, that would compensate for the numbers being felled per year. On average, that would be approximately 7 billion trees being planted each year. And that 1 billion excess trees are just what we need to get our tree population back to where it should be.

And so for anyone who would like to make a positive difference to our planet, go plant a tree. Once more, it merely takes 10% of our population to start making a difference. And you may be one of those people.
