Did you know that throughout the world, 3 to 6 billion trees are cut down each and every year. There is so much that is created from trees and this means there is a big need in the marketplace. As an example, paper is needed both in the home and workplace and timber is used in the building of homes. It is possible to act to save our forests although we need to accept that most of the products made from trees are necessary.
Trees are celebrated on Arbor Day and the aim of the celebration is that we need to plant trees at that time but this is not truly taking on the issue. Planting trees is not something that a lot of folks give any thought to. If they planted trees, we would be all ready to go.
There are around seven billion people in the world now. The actual figures essentially fluctuate and so this is a calculated guess. However, we could replace the trees that are lost every year if every one of those individuals did actually plant a tree on Arbor day. We know that this is not going to take place.
If you would like to preserve our ecosystems, planting trees is a positive step that you can take. As for planting a tree, I would not advise you just do this on a specific day each year. Once a month is a good goal or why not weekly? We must try to make up for those who don’t plant trees even though they go on using the earth’s valuable resources.
Each year on Arbor Day, the number of trees planted ranges from 8 to 15 million. Based on those estimates, we nevertheless need to take that number up by a further 5 billion. And yearly, it simply keeps getting worse.
A complete answer is required that still encourages men and women to plant trees but I would like to suggest the following. It could be made a legal requirement that anyone involved in cutting down trees must replace each tree felled with two newly planted ones and this would go a long way to resolving the problem.
But until someone can turn this into reality, we are left to take care of replacing the trees ourselves. In fact, restoring the amount of trees required is definitely attainable. For instance, if only 10% of the people on Earth planted a tree monthly, it would cover the amount of trees that are chopped down yearly. Annually, this would result in the planting of more or less 7 billion trees. Easentially, this gives us an extra one billion trees and will go a long way to restoring the levels that are really required.
Thus for anyone who would like to make a positive difference to our environment, go plant a tree. Things will change if 10% of people worldwide choose to do this. And you may be one of those people.
