Trees are a Renewable Resource, and Forests?

However, forests are not. This is a important fact that many people misunderstand. It is also our mission to go out there and educate the masses. We hope that by reading this post you are able to understand more about trees, forests, and our environment. If possible, please share our post to any of your friends and family as that would help our cause a lot.

Trees are a renewable resource because of how we are able to plant them and harvest them, much like any other crop. They provide clean air and sometimes other kinds of resources like rubber and fruit. A forest, however, is more than just trees. It is filled with a variety of animals and organisms. When people talk about cutting down trees as part of a forest, but leaving the forest intact, this is a very strange statement as trees take up a majority stake in any forest.

Of course, it’s possible to cut and remove a select number of trees from any forest without entirely demolishing the forest, but the death of frees and their growth are part of how a forest works. Even the gaps between the canopy of leaves and branches are essential to the survival of certain species living on the ground of the forest.

Trees can take years or even decades to grow, and logging companies simply do not see the crucial need to replant trees after they are done with their commercial activities. As of now, the forest population on Earth has dwindled. You may be tricked by the lines of trees planted along the highways and roads, into thinking that they are abound and plenty, but that’s just an illusion.

Many people think that forests are an infinite resource. That we can never run out of trees because trees grow in forests, and forests are everywhere. It goes without a saying that the loss of trees and forest land has resulted in climate change over the past few decades. Most people are unaware of how much the human demand for wood and paper have created an worldwide ecological problem for our planet. If you truly know the full scope of things, you would be amazed at how much this problem has caused us, in terms of the environment and our planet’s sustained life.

All that’s said and done, there is still room for us to recover from this. Mistakes were made, but if we come together as a planet of people, cognizant about the problems our mother Earth is facing, we can turn this around. As much as deforestation has been progressing at shocking rates, we can still fix this.

We need to stop making excuses for ourselves and stop this greed that has driven our species into turning against the very thing that has provided us since the beginning of time.

If you truly believe that forests and trees are a renewable resource, we strongly recommend that you take some time to rethink, share this post with as many people as you can, and if possible, contribute to the Clear Water Carbon Fund and plant a tree yourself.

3 Reasons Why Planting Trees is So Important

post1

Why are planting trees so important? According to the environmental protection agencies, if we want to save our planet from destroying itself, we must plant more trees. Not only will trees remove harmful chemicals from the soil, but it will help reduce the greenhouses that lead to higher environmental footprints.

Here are 3 Reasons Why Planting Trees is So Important:

1. Trees Produce Oxygen

Let’s face it – without oxygen, we would cease to exist. A mature tree produces more oxygen in a season than ten people breath in a year. Many of us don’t realize or fully understand that the forest works as a large filter to clean the air we breathe.

2. Trees Clean the Soil & Air

Phytoremediation is the absorption of dangerous toxins and chemicals that enter the soil. Trees work to either store or change the harmful pollutants into less harmful forms. They filter sewage and chemicals, clean oil spills, reduce the effects of dangerous animal wastes and clean the water.

Trees also clean the air by intercepting harmful airborne particles, absorbing pollutants such as sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, and nitrogen dioxide. Trees work to lower air temperatures by retaining particulates and respiration.

3. Trees Help Mitigate the Effects of Weather

With the adverse effects of climate change around the world, people are witnessing the consequences of habitat change, drought, and ice melt. Trees can help diverse the effects of severe weather. They hold the soil to prevent flash floods and downpours. The shade from trees decreases the effects of heat waves as trees usually survive droughts better than plants. They also absorb carbon to prevent excessive climate change while provided food and shelter for species.

Bottom Line

Grab a shovel and start digging. There are not enough trees to completely offset the changes of global warming. We can reduce this by planting more trees.
