If we look at annual figures, approximately three and six billion trees are being cut down across the globe. The fact is that the goods that are created from trees are essential for our everyday living. Such as wood to construct homes, paper for writing on and even toilet paper for, well you know. Regrettably, we need the products that the trees produce but we can do something about the depletion of our forests.
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 dealing with the issue. The truth is, trees are not being planted by most people. If they planted trees, we would be all set.
There are around seven billion people in the world today. That is only an estimation since you can’t keep an exact count. The number of trees around the world would be restored if every person planted a tree on Arbor Day. We know in reality that this is not likely to occur.
So, the suggestion is for those of you who care about the Earth and want oxygen so you can live, plant a tree. In terms of planting a tree, I would not propose you merely do this on a certain day every year. How about going out and planting trees each week or at least once a month? The reason is because someone must compensate for all the people who are utilizing our resources but refuse to plant a tree for whatever reason.
Numbers show that approximately 15 million trees are planted on Arbor Day. Based on those estimates, we nevertheless need to take that figure up by a further 5 billion. This situation keeps on getting worse.
I actually have a solution to the problem entirely although people should nevertheless keep on planting trees whenever they can. 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 really make a big difference.
At present, this is not likely to happen and so the need to preserve the number of trees in the world is in our own hands. Trying to keep those tree numbers up won’t really take a lot of effort. If every month, roughly 10% of people in the world could plant a tree, that would compensate for the numbers being cut down every year. Roughly 7 billion new trees would be planted by doing this. And that 1 billion extra trees are just what we need to get our tree population back to where it has to be.
Every person worried about the our planet can help by planting trees. Once again, it only takes 10% of our population to start making a difference. You’re the only one who can decide if you want to help out.
