Why We Chose To Plant Trees

Why did we choose to plant trees?

    Trees are a vital part of the ecosystem. As the biggest plants on the planet, trees give us oxygen, store carbon, stabilize the soil and give life and homes to the worlds wildlife. Trees also supply us with the materials for food and shelter.

Trees clean the air: Trees absorb odors and pollutant gases such as nitrogen oxides, ammonia, sulfur dioxide and ozone and filters particulates out of the air by trapping them on their leaves and bark. This helps for more breathable air for us to be the best shredders we could possibly be.

Trees provide oxygen: In one year an acre of mature trees can provide enough oxygen for 18 people!

Tree Help prevent water pollution: Trees reduce runoff by breaking down rainfall thus allowing the water to flow down the trunk and into the earth below the tree. This prevents storm water from carrying pollutants to the ocean.

Trees Heal: Studies have shown that patients with views of trees out their windows heal faster and with less complications. Children with ADHD show fewer symptoms when they have access to nature. Exposure to trees and nature aids concentration by reducing mental fatigue.

Trees Reduce Violence: Neighborhoods and homes that are barren have shown to have a a greater incidence of violence in and out of the home than their greener counterparts. trees and landscaping help to reduce the level of fear.

Trees Provide a Canopy And Habitat For Wildlife:  Sycamore and Oak are among the many urban species that provide excellent urban homes for birds, bees, possums and squirrels. but around the world there are many many other species that would benefit from trees being planted.

Trees Provide wood:  Trees can be harvested for fire wood and raw materials for building.

There are so many benefits of trees and why planting trees is the most beneficial thing we felt we could do for our planet, the people on it and the future of shredding.
