Trees are our lifeline. They provide innumerable services to the planet and mankind. They clean air, trap carbon-dioxide and other harmful gases. They give wood and provide shade. The trees hold soil in place. Trees are the best way we can protect ourselves from the observed climate change.
We are losing forests and trees at a rapid rate all around the world. Deforestation seems to have become a human habit. All of us, collectively, have decimated half of the global forests due to our needs. Yet, our patterns of consumption show no signs of slowing down.
Climate change is real and should be a cause of concern. If you are facing increased droughts and fire in your region, think about how you can save water. If the air quality is bad, look around to see if you have enough trees to soak up all the carbon. We need way more trees to capture the carbon we generate. Yet, our habits destroy habitats all over the globe.
