Trees provided additional necessities such as medicine, tools and shelter. Today, the value of tree increases and more benefits are discovered as their role expands to satisfy the needs created by our modern lifestyle.

There are certain reasons that trees are necessary for improving our worldly condition, some of them are as follows:

2. Trees Clean the soil: Phytoremediation is the direct use of Green plants, which absorbs the dangerous chemicals and pollutants that have entered the soil. Trees can either store harmful pollutants or actually change the pollutant into less harmful forms. Trees filter sewage and farm chemicals, reduce the effects of animal wastes, clean roadside spills and clean water runoff into streams.

3. Trees Control Noise Pollution: Trees muffle urban noise almost as effectively as stone walls. Trees, planted at strategic points in a neighborhood or around your house, can abate major noises from freeways and airports.

5. Trees are Carbon Sink: Trees absorbs and lock away carbon dioxide in the roots, wood and leaves, to produce food. Carbon dioxide is the global warming suspect, a forest is a carbon storage area or a sink that can lock up as much carbon as it produces.

6. Trees Clean the Air: Trees help cleanse the air by intercepting airborne particles, reducing heat, and absorbing such pollutants as carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen dioxide. Trees remove this air pollution by lowering air temperature, through respiration, and by retaining particulates.
