Trees turn an ordinary city street into a pleasant strolling ground, providing shade, color, and texture. They also soak up carbon dioxide and stabilize soil, which helps to clean up the air we breathe and guard against flooding.

 

Some 46-58 thousand square miles of forest are lost each year—equivalent to 48 football fields every minute. - WWF

 

Deforestation can be caused by logging for wood and paper products, cutting forests to plant crops or graze livestock, to make room for growing urban areas, and from natural causes like wildfires and pests.

 

You can help by getting involved or by donating. There are quite a few charitable organizations that will plant a tree with your donation. There is even a search engine that plants trees with their ad revenue.
