This article in about the usefulness of trees. For our progress we need to cut them down, so we need to replace them at a higher rate to compensate the deforestation using everything we have, like tree spades and environment rules.
Trees provide us lots of benefits. Even if you look through a window and see green trees outside, it can reduce your blood pressure, anxiety and stress of your mind and you will feel a good and fresh feeling. But it is a matter of great anxiety that we are killing trees every day and making our living awkward and risky.
Though park and road authorities are trying to make a green urban area with trees, it is not sufficient. We should plant more and more trees to save our environment. As the younger trees take a a few years to grow and prosper, the earlier to begin, the better. The tree transplanter, tree spades or tree movers, whatever you call them, are a great tool to transplant trees from nurseries. So, during the last 50 years the use of tree spades is increasing worldwide extensively.
What does a tree do?
Trees are fundamental to the existence of life on earth. We breathe in oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide. Trees breathe in (or absorb) carbon dioxide and unleash oxygen. This is the way in which we get pure and fresh oxygen for our living. A growing healthy tree can absorb 26 pounds of carbon dioxide every year. Not only carbon dioxide, they can absorb more harmful gasses like sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide etc. that remains in the air and combat the global warming effect in the earth. Trees can preserve water in soils and moisturize the air. Rain clouds and raining, the existence of springs and flowing of rivers are going on due to the existence of trees.
Roots of trees hold soils and stop soil erosion, that provocate so many troubles to society all around the world. Their bodies protects everything from heavy winds. Taking nutrients from subsoils and providing with organic substance the earth, trees build a balance in the environment. They provide food and shelter for animals and birds: they create harmony in the ecosystem.
Yet we are not grateful at all. It is a matter of great regret that we are destroying trees mercilessly. Making earth deforested we are creating serious challenges for the environment and our future.
From an independent report, on The Impact of EU Consumption on Deforestation, released by the European Commission, we got some shocking information.
According to the report, which was released few years ago, one-third of total deforestation is occurred globally by the highly industrialized economic zone of the European Union and China. China is responsible for the period of 1990-2008. In that period the forests of Amazon (Brazil), Harapan (Indonesia), Ituri (Congo), South-East Asia, Latin America and Africa were affected very badly. (Source: Greenpeace).
Another survey, done by the United Nations about collaboration program to reduce emissions due to deforestation and degradation, shows that 50% of the forests were depleted in the 20th century. In the beginning of this century (2000-2005) in the tropical forest were destroyed 7.3m hectares per year, that is per day 20,000 hectares (Source: The Guardian).
This is the most alarming situation. To overcome from this frustrating scenario one of the greatest remedy are Trees. If we can increase the existence of trees we can ensure our existence on earth. Tree spades and environment: playing a great role in saving, planting, transplanting and increasing trees on earth.
The French Francis Hallé said, in his recently published book: “Give me a tree and I’ll save the world”. We can also say: “Give us a tree spade, and we’ll boost trees production”.
