Benefits Of Tree You Probably Didn't Know

With every tree that we plant for you, you create valuable habitat for animals and plants and contribute to improving the climate. Even more: thanks to your investment, local smallholders have an additional income.

Why are trees so important to the environment?

Trees offer so many benefits to our daily life. It is widely accepted that tree planting helps curb climate change. Trees purify the air we breathe, provide fresh drinking water, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and create a home for thousands of plant and animal species. Raw materials from trees are the main ingredients in 25% of all medicines. You surely know about aspirin? The raw materials come from the bark of a tree.

Planting a tree is a lifelong investment.

Here are just a few of the benefits of a tree:


Trees are like a vacuum cleaner. Through their leaves and bark, they suck up harmful pollutants and release clean oxygen so we can breathe. Trees don’t just absorb CO2. They also absorb odors and pollutants such as nitrogen oxides, ammonia, sulfur dioxide, and ozone. It is estimated that a tree can absorb almost 4 kg of polluted air and give off 120 kg of oxygen per year. Trees absorb harmful carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, thereby reducing the effects of climate change.


Trees play a key role in capturing rainwater and reducing natural disasters such as floods and landslides. Their intricate root systems act like filters; they remove pollutants and slow down the absorption of water. This process prevents flooding and inundation. Trees filter and purify the water we drink.


Trees provide habitat for many types of plants, insects, animals, birds, and other living things. They all rely on and contribute to the ecosystems in which they live. Fruit and nut trees are not only a source of food for humans, but also for birds, animals, and other living things. Without trees, forest dwellers would have no home anywhere.


Trees are involved in 25% of all medicines. Aspirin, for example, is obtained from the bark of a tree. Walking through a quiet forest can relieve stress and anxiety and give us the opportunity to reconnect with nature. In addition, the shade of the trees protects our skin from the increasingly harsh solar radiation (UV). And, tees make people feel good.


Trees prevent soil erosion. During heavy rains, the runoff finds its way into streams, lakes, and wetlands and can lead to flooding. Trees prevent flooding with their water balance. The roots of the trees also absorb pollutants and destroy them. Canopies of leaves dampen the falling rain and their roots hold the soil in place so that the water cannot drain away but penetrates the soil. Tree roots improve and protect the soil, and prevent soil erosion.

Social impact:

Trees and forests offer valuable social, aesthetic, and cultural benefits. The forests are popular with both tourists and local communities as a leisure and recreational area. Trees also provide cultural, educational, and employment opportunities through learning and practicing skills in forestry, woodworking, construction, and carpentry, as well as through other traditional techniques and crafts. Trees create jobs, the job opportunities are endless. Trees provide fruit, nuts, berries, and leaves, the consumption of which guarantee a healthy diet.

Maintaining a mature garden is the constant work that requires attention and effort. It is also a job that requires making choices in order to best care for your trees. It is therefore sometimes necessary to cut down a tree, for various reasons: it is sick, it hinders the growth of other trees, it disturbs the neighborhood or even poses a danger to power lines.
