Trees are called the lungs of our earth [click through to photosynthesis]. They play an important role in combating climate change. Trees absorb CO2 and exhale oxygen. This is how they purify the air. But more importantly: an adult tree absorbs between 10 and 40 kilos of CO2 per year!
Apart from doing a great job in terms of CO2 storage, trees also attract new life. Countless birds, mammals, insects, but also mosses and fungi live in forests. And where trees grow, the quality of the soil improves. In short: trees improve biodiversity and help against climate change! The more trees, the more life on our planet!
