Due to tree felling, we lose up to six billion trees on an annual basis. There is so much that is produced from trees and this means there is a big requirement in the marketplace. Such as lumber to build dwellings, paper for writing on and even toilet paper for, well you know. It is possible to act to save our forests although we must accept that most of the items made from trees are necessary.
Arbor Day was created with the aim that we must all be planting trees on that day although truthfully this has had little impact. Planting trees is not something that many folks give any thought to. It would help, naturally, if everyone planted a tree.
The worldwide population is probably approximately in the 7 billion mark. The actual figures essentially fluctuate and so this is a calculated approximation. The number of trees globally would be restored if every person planted a tree on Arbor Day. We know that this is not going to take place.
So, the answer is for those of you who care about our planet and want oxygen so you can live, plant a tree. And I don’t mean to merely go out once each year and plant a tree. Planting a tree monthly is a good goal or why not every week? The reason is because someone needs to compensate for all of those are using our resources but don’t want to plant a tree for whatever reason.
Did you know that on Arbor Day, only approximately 8 and 15 million trees are planted? Based on those estimates, we nonetheless need to take that number up by a further 5 billion. Regrettably, this is not getting any better.
Whereas we all have to make the effort to plant trees, I have an idea that may solve this once and for all. If a law could be enacted that each time a tree is felled by companies in the timber trade, they then had to plant two new ones, this could genuinely make a huge difference.
Presently, this is unlikely to happen and therefore the job to preserve the number of trees in the world is in our own hands. And it will not take that much for us to increase the tree population annually. For instance, if just 10% of the people on Earth planted a tree each month, it would cover the amount of trees that are felled yearly. Around 7 billion new trees would be planted by doing this. In effect, this gives us an extra one billion trees and will go a long way to restoring the levels that are really needed.
Planting a tree is a way people can make a contribution to the earth. Once again, it only takes 10% of the world population to start making a difference. And you could be one of those people.
