  • Cleaner air across the country.

  • Planted trees help our biodiversity, ensure the supply of oxygen for the next generations, and provide us with various resources. Without trees, the existence of human life, as well as other species on earth. If we plant 20 million trees, the earth will get with 260 million more tons of oxygen. One acre of trees can remove up to 2.6 tons of Carbon Dioxide each year. During photosynthesis, trees and other plants absorb carbon dioxide and give off oxygen. They provide us oxygen, filter carbon dioxide, prevent soil erosion, maintain the ecological balance, and many more. Also, they provide us with food, shelter, and many useful things.
