How Trees Clean the Air.
Trees and forests are constantly cleaning our air and improving our air quality. They exhale the oxygen we need to breath while absorbing co2 and other air pollution.
Here are the 4 things that trees do for our atmosphere that are essential for our heath and quality of life.
1. trees create oxygen.
Trees are constantly absorbing carbon dioxide and giving off oxygen as a by product while producing carbohydrates that they reqire to grow. Proper oxygen levels are necessary for humans and all the animals to live. In cities the time might not be far where people would buy oxygen cylinders to breath. Planting enough trees in and near these cities would provide the oxygen and also help these cities ease their air pollution. Rainforests are often called the lungs of the earth because they produce so much of the worlds oxygen. Fact is that trees planted anywhere in the world produce life giving oxygen which travel through the global air currents ultimately making all trees beneficial to everyone and everywhere.
2. Trees Reduce Air Pollution.
Trees absorb and breakdown most of the major air pollutants including ground level ozone, sulphur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, and carbon monoxide. just as we easily breath these gases into our lungs potentially causing a serous health issues. Trees breath them in as they drain co2 removing them from air, trees also absorb tiny particles of pollution and smog that land on their leaves and bark. within the trees these chemicals go through a series of bio chemical reactions which convert them to non harmful compounds. Due to this amazing power of these trees, large forests are like giant air purifiers that help clean our air supporting human health and longeity as well as all life on earth.
3. Trees remove humid Hazes (Fog).
Air pollution and water particles suspended in the air create humid haze which has many negative impact including traping in heat, reducing visibility, and causing respitory illness. due to the small size of air pollution particles it remains dispersed rather than collecting into droplets which form clouds and fall as rain. large forests would dramatically reduce these hazes giving off water vapour along with friendly bacteria which trigger the human hazes form into clouds, pollution and water then rains down into the forests. where trees and soil micro organisms breaks most of the pollutants down into safer compunds.
4. Trees prevent dust storms.
there are many areas in the world where all of the original plant life has been cleared and exposed soil has turned to dust. Without trees and vegetatio to slow down the wind and hold soil in place and keep the soil moist , the strong winds pick the ducst and carry upto hundreds of miles. Dusts storms becomes huge problems in areas without plant cover. Thesse dust storm covers everything in fine dust causing mechanical failures, lung problems, loss of visibilty and a number of other problems including spreading disease. The increase of droughts due to climate change making dust storm worse each year. Replanting eough trees in these areas can make the soil healthy and moist again, preventing dust storm and rebuilding healthy ecosystems. As you can see trees and forests are essential for cleaning the air we breath. forests had a huge role in making our atmosphere breathable and keeping the land and air stable for millions of years. most scientists estiate as much as half of the original tree cover now has been lost. Its upto us to bring those forest back so that they continue to provide us the clean air we depend o them for.
so plat trees and save our planet and save yourself.
