Facts about Trees

Trees create an ecosystem to provide habitat and food for birds and other animals. Trees absorb carbon dioxide and potentially harmful gasses, such as sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, from the air and release oxygen. One large tree can supply a day's supply of oxygen for four people.

Adopt the trees. ... Trees are vital. As the biggest plants on the planet, they give us oxygen, store carbon, stabilise the soil and give life to the world's wildlife. They also provide us with the materials for tools and shelter.

Life could not exist on Earth without trees because they produce most of the oxygen that humans and wildlife breathe. Trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and release oxygen using the process of photosynthesis.Mar 15, 2017

FILTHY AIR: Without trees, humans would not be able survive because the air would be unsuitable for breathing. If anything, people would have to develop gas masks that filter the little oxygen that would be left in the air. ... Anyway, trees take carbon from the atmosphere through photosynthesis in order to make energy.Apr 12, 2011

If we would cut trees what is going to happen is that population won't stop growing but oxygen in the atmosphere will reduce. ... Trees have to breathe to live, same as us and every living thing on the planet. They breathe in carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen. We breathe out carbon dioxide and breathe in oxygen.Apr 27, 2012

Trees are a crucial part of the carbon cycle, a global process in which carbon dioxide constantly circulates through the atmosphere into organism and back again. ... Therefore, the absence of trees would result in significantly HIGHER amounts of carbon dioxide in the air and LOWER amounts of oxygen!May 13, 2015

It may sound antithetical to what we usually hear about climate change, but cutting down some trees could actually be a good thing for our environment, according to new research. Trees provide natural carbon storage, and cutting them down leads to a huge increase in greenhouse gas emissions.Dec 11, 2013

People should stop cutting down trees because trees take in Co2 which causes global warming. ... Another reason people should stop cutting down trees is because trees exhale oxygen which is what humans breathe, and if we run out of oxygen then no one would be able to breathe.Feb 12, 2015

Deforestation can have a negative impact on the environment. The most dramatic impact is a loss of habitat for millions of species. Eighty percent of Earth's land animals and plants live in forests, and many cannot survive the deforestation that destroys their homes. Deforestation also drives climate change.

Lightning Likes Trees. Trees attract lightning because they provide a path for lightning to travel from the storm cloud to the earth. ... Lightning most often strikes oak, elm, pine, tulip, cottonwood, ash, maple, sycamore, hemlock and spruce trees.

Although turkeys spend most of their time on the ground during the day, they sleep in trees at night. Turkeys cannot see well in the dark. Sleeping in trees provides protection from predators that roam and can see at night. They fly up to roost at dusk, and fly down at dawn to begin their daily rituals.

Although most biomes on Earth are covered in trees, the tundra is known for its lack of trees. ... Although there are few trees in the tundra, there is a variety of smaller vegetation that grows in this environment. Plants that are commonly found in the tundra biome include dwarf shrubs, grasses, mosses and lichens.
