Earth Day – Ways to Get Involved and Help Save Trees

1 0

Trees are essential to our existence. They contribute to the environment by providing oxygen & clean air for us to breathe, help moderate our climate and so on. Human use of trees for agriculture activities (making room for things like cattle ranching), logging (to make goods such as paper, furniture, etc.) and making land for housing and urbanization are some of the many causes of deforestation.
