Adopt a Tree
"Trees are the Earth's Endless Effort to speak to the Listening Heaven; They are the poem that Earth writes upon the sky"
We, as a human have spontaneous love and attraction towards the trees. We feel relaxed and retrieve from all our problems when we sit on the lap of our mother Earth. The real happiness is just lying under a tree and looking at the sky through the leaves. For us, Trees are just like small children who needs love, affection and care to grow big, strong and creates a own unique identity. It is very well said that 'Adoption is not about finding children for families, it's about finding families for children.'
When we actually adopt a tree, we are adopting good health not only for us alone, but for the environment as a whole. Trees have many far reaching benefits they help retain airborne pollutants, absorb CO2 - the leading driver of climate change — and release large amounts of oxygen. They help cool cities by providing shade; they reduce flooding events and noise pollution; they provide an essential natural habitat for birds and insects; and they bring aesthetic value to our neighbourhoods.
Why Should I Adopt a Tree?
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. Trees are an important part of every community. Trees increase our quality of life by bringing natural elements and wildlife habitats into urban settings. We gather under the cool shade they provide during outdoor activities with family and friends. Many neighborhoods are also the home of very old trees that serve as historic landmarks and a great source of town pride.
Trees control climate by moderating the effects of the sun, rain and wind. Leaves absorb and filter the sun’s radiant energy, keeping things cool in summer. Trees also preserve warmth by providing a screen from harsh wind. In addition to influencing wind speed and direction, they shield us from the downfall of rain, sleet and hail. Trees also lower the air temperature and reduce the heat intensity of the greenhouse effect by maintaining low levels of carbon dioxide.
Benefits Receive from Tree
Trees play a significant importance in our environment and human well-being. Some of its benefits are discussed below:-
- Trees benefit health - The canopies of trees serve as a physical filter, confining dust, and absorbing pollutants from the air. They also provide shade from solar radiation and lessen noise.
- Controls Climate - As trees inhale Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, tree plantation is the best organic way that could be efficiently practiced to reverse global warming and prevent climate change. In recent days, the importance of tree plantation has gained significant ground in many countries.
- Trees boost wildlife - Trees host complex microhabitats. When young, they give habitation and food to wondrous communities of birds, insects, lichen, and fungi. When ancient, their trunks also provide the hollow cover required by species such as bats, wood boring beetles, and woodpeckers, etc.
- And there is so much more! - Trees become a source of medicines, foods, and materials, improving our planet and lives in limitless ways. We are continually discovering new ways that trees can benefit us. Research is uncovering hidden and beneficial ways in which trees enrich our planet and our lives. Without trees, we should not have a future.
