Eigth reasons why trees are important:
- Tree equals life.
- 50% of all plant and animal species in the world live in tropical Rainforest.
- 70% of the world’s plants and animals live in forests and are losing their habitats to deforestation.
- 28,000 species are expected to become extinct by the next 25 years due to deforestation.
- More than 121 natural remedies in the rainforest can be used as medicines.
- If forests are destroyed through logging or burning, their carbon is released into the atmosphere as carbon dioxide, a climate-changing greenhouse gas. 15% of all greenhouse gas emissions are the result of deforestation.
- 300 billions tons of carbon are stored in the Earth’s forests, which helps regulate its climate by regulating atmospheric gases, stabilising rainfall, and protecting against desertification.
- They play an important role in the water cycle, grounding the water in their roots and releasing it into the atmosphere.
