Tree Hugs

If we cut one tree, then let’s plant two new trees in our space.

Some points to ponder on PLANTING | GROWING | SAVING trees:

Trees reduce air conditioning needs by 30%

A mature tree removes 70 times more pollution than a newly planted tree

A single tree produces 260 pounds of oxygen per year

All above numbers are approximate

Typically the Forest Department provides free trees

Cheap trick to water a young tree  – Watch the video

Protect the young tree – This concept can be applied – Watch the video

  Trees properly placed around buildings can reduce air conditioning needs by 30%

A mature tree removes almost 70 times more pollution than a newly planted tree

A single tree produces approximately 260 pounds of oxygen per year. That means two mature trees can supply enough oxygen annually to support a family of four

One tree can absorb as much carbon in a year as a car produces while driving 26,000 miles

Over the course its life, a single tree can absorb one ton of carbon dioxide
