Happy Earth Day! ~ Planting More Trees

Eucalyptus plantation in Galicia in Northwest ...
"He that plants a tree loves others besides himself."
Irrational utilization of Natural resources has led to environmental concerns. Thus putting the very existence of living being into question. 


A proactive way is to support the local community on plantation drives. Planting tree has direct impact on reducing carbon presence in the air and planting shrubs and grasses help to recharge ground water in drink water aquifers.


Planting shrubs and vegetation is a key to stopping and preventing the rapid flow of storm water and helps to infiltrate water back into the drinking water aquifers that can eventually be put to good use.

Environmental Benefits Of Planting Trees 
  • Trees serve as a natural habitat, which provide support to a wide variety of flora and fauna. They provide a sense of privacy and security to the wildlife, seeking shelter in the woods.
  • Trees remove excess amount of carbon dioxide and air pollutants present in the atmosphere, including sulfur dioxide, ozone and nitrogen oxide.
  • Planting trees is very important to improve the quality of air and reduce its pollution.
  • The visual quality of a landscape is improved by planting trees, which, in turn, improves the quality of life.
  • The biodiversity gets enriched by planting trees.
  • Trees provide shade, thereby moderating the summer temperature.
  • Trees reduce soil erosion, because they bind the soil through their roots. They also help improve the fertility of soil.
  • The greenery of trees adds color to the landscape and enhances the picturesque beauty of the environment.
  • According to a recent study, houses and properties on tree-lined streets are found to be attractive places to live in.
  • Trees are great absorbers of noise. Noise pollution can be reduced, to a great extent, by planting more and more trees.
  • Planting of trees facilitates better management of flood water. Trees also moderate flood hazards, by allowing the rainwater to percolate into the soil, instead of running off it.
