ConnectFor is back with another popular, and much-awaited volunteering event- The Tree Plantation Drive VicTree 4.0 Pune. Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink and provide habitat. So, as you can tell trees are kind of a big deal. Trees are essential to us, and our lives.
Despite their importance to life as we know it, humans have still cut down trees specifically for paper, agriculture, building materials, and fuel. The cutting down of trees is a huge problem in the long run, but planting trees is a solution. Planting trees is one of the most effective and sustainable ways to positively affect the environment. We need trees now more than ever! Tree planting is a method where you can add and replace trees that can serve as a big help for the future generation. With this, there are many benefits that we can enjoy!
Here are a few reasons why we should be planting trees:
- When we plant trees, we are providing shade for ourselves and local wildlife
- Trees provide shelter, habitat, and food
- Trees hold soil in place, reducing erosion around watercourses and around the property as well. They absorb and store rainwater
- Healthy trees absorb carbon dioxide and reduce the effects of climate change
- Trees provide food. Food producing trees provide fruits, nuts, berries, and leaves for consumption by both humans and animals.
- Believe it or not, trees help reduce stress, anxiety, and allows us to reconnect with nature. It’s impossible to ignore that feeling of elation you feel walking through a calm and quiet forest.
- You get to spend time with your near and dear ones and also create a difference at the same time!
- Not to forget the sense of happiness you get after planting those trees and doing your bit to help increase the green cover!
These are just a few benefits of what happens when you plant trees! Feeling motivated and inspired? Want to make a difference? Go ahead, sign up to plant a tree! We may not see a better and bigger change soon, but the next generation will surely benefit from it!
