Importance of Trees in our Life – Pep Talk India

Trees are our best friends. They play a very important role in our life. We can not live without them. They give us timber, paper and firewood.

Timber is used in making houses, train compartments, big boxes, tools etc. Without paper life may be difficult for us. Paper is necessary for study and writing. People in villages use firewood to cook meals. They use wood to build houses, huts, carts and agriculture tools.

Trees also give us food, gum and medicine. They also add to the beauty of life. Gardens can not be charming without them. We need them for oxygen and good health.

Trees also help to control pollution: They absorb carbon dioxide. They improve our environment. They cause rainfall and protect water resources under the ground. They prevent floods and droughts.

Therefore, we should try our best to grow more trees. Govt. and social welfare societies should start a movement. There should be awards for those persons who grow more trees.

  1. Ya, it also helped my daughter in her holiday’s homework…
    ?????????????????

  2. Trees are vital. As the biggest plants on the planet, they give us oxygen, store carbon, stabilise the soil and give life to the world’s wildlife. They also provide us with the materials for tools and shelter.

    Not only are trees essential for life, but as the longest living species on earth, they give us a link between the past, present and future.

    It’s critical that woodlands, rainforests and trees in urban settings, such as parks, are preserved and sustainably managed across the world. Play your part and adopt the trees in The Royal Parks today.

    Trees benefit health
    The canopies of trees act as a physical filter, trapping dust and absorbing pollutants from the air – removing up to 1.7 kilos per tree annually. They also provide shade from solar radiation and reduce noise.

    Over 20 species of British trees and shrubs are known to have medicinal properties. The oil from birch bark, for example, has antiseptic properties.

    Research shows that within minutes of being surrounded by trees and green space, your blood pressure will drop, your heart rate will slow and your stress levels will come down.

    Trees benefit the environment
    Trees absorb carbon dioxide as they grow and the carbon that they store in their wood helps slow the rate of global warming.

    They reduce wind speeds and cool the air as they lose moisture and reflect heat upwards from their leaves. It is estimated that trees can reduce the temperature in a city by up to 7°c.

    Trees also help prevent flooding and soil erosion, absorbing thousands of litres of stormwater.

    Trees boost wildlife
    General TreesTrees host complex microenvironments. When young, they offer habitation and food to amazing communities of birds, insects, lichen and fungi. When ancient, they also provide the hollow cover needed by species such as bats, woodboring beetles, tawny owls and woodpeckers.

    One mature oak can be home to as many as 500 different species. Richmond Park is full of such trees – which is one of the reasons why it has been designated a National Nature Reserve and Site of Special Scientific Interest.

    Trees strengthen communities
    Trees strengthen the distinctive character of a place and encourage local pride. Urban woodland can be used as an educational resource and to bring groups together for activities like walking and bird-watching. Trees are also invaluable for children to play in and discover their sense of adventure.

    Trees grow the economy
    People are attracted to live, work and invest in green surroundings. Research shows that average house prices are between 5%-18% higher where properties are close to mature trees and companies benefit from a healthier, happier workforce if there are parks and trees nearby.

    Trees protect the Future
    Soon, for the first time in history, the number of people with homes in cities will outstrip those living in the countryside – so parks and trees will become an even more vital component of urban life. We must respect them and protect them for the future.
