Trees as natural air filter • Trees are natures air conditioners. They Purifies the air absorbing carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide. • A mature leafy tree produces as much oxygen in a season as 10 people inhale in a year. • In one year the average tree inhales 26 pounds of carbon dioxide, the amount emitted by a car on an 11,000 mile trip.
Protection of soil by trees Before• Trees protects the soil by absorption of dangerous chemicals and other pollutants that have entered the soil.• Trees can either store harmful pollutants or actually change the pollutant into less harmful forms. After• Tree roots keep soil from washing away. Water is also much cleaner when there are a lot of trees around, Their leaves, trunk, and roots are natural pollution filters.

Trees : Important part of our Ecosystem• Trees contribute to their environment by providing oxygen, improving air quality, conserving water, preserving soil, and supporting wildlife.• During the process of photosynthesis, trees consumes in carbon dioxide and produce the oxygen we breathe.• Trees are an important part of the water cycle. Their roots extract moisture from the soil while their leaves return moisture to the air as water vapour.• Trees help cause rain because they return moisture to the atmosphere.• Hence they protect water resources under the ground.
