Tree plantation is good for the environment. Everyone knows that trees are the source of oxygen. They inhale carbon dioxide and exhale oxygen without which the survival of living beings is not possible on earth.
Apart from inhaling carbon dioxide trees also absorb various harmful gases including sulfur dioxide and carbon monoxide and also filter harmful pollutants from the atmosphere thereby providing us fresher and cleaner air to breathe. The growing amount of air pollution caused by the smoke emitted by vehicles and factories can be controlled only if we plant more and more trees.
However, this is not the only reason why tree plantation is important. It offers several other benefits. Some of the top advantages of growing trees include:
Providing fruits and leaves that serve as food for birds, animals as well as human beings.
Providing wood, rubber and other raw materials that are used for manufacturing various goods such as furniture, doors, windows, utensils, stationery items and decorative items. Conservation of water. Habitat for birds and animals. Climate Control. Preservation of soil.
