Planting Trees At The Crocky Trail

Planting trees can help save the environment in many different ways and here is how:

  • Trees help to combat Global Warming as they absorb carbon dioxide and other potentially harmful gases from the aie and release Oxygen.
  • One large tree can supply a day’s supply of oxygen for four people.
  • They can also improve area water quality.
  • They help to make the ground fertile for other plants.
  • Fallen tree leaves can reduce soil temperature and soil moisture loss.
  • Trees create an ecosystem to provide habitat and food for birds and other animals.
