Here is “why you should not cut trees “in short version. 1.Trees emit oxygen and use carbon dioxide – we can’t live without oxygen and by using carbon dioxide, trees help rid of some CO2 harmful gases 2.Cutting trees down causes loss of animal habitat, which sometimes makes certain animals migrate to another area (not their natural habitat) and disrupts the ecosystem there (like the beetles in B.C.) 3.Trees are not renewable per say – yes, you can replant...

How to Save Trees

We all have seen many write-ups on why we should save trees, very few on how. As we know with the amount of deforestation in the current era, if we don’t replace the tress and stop deforestation there will be a time, when we won’t have oxygen emitting trees, in other words “End of world”. So let’s talk little about how to save tree. We already know the basic things like planting more trees and recycling. Planting more trees is the best way, but it takes more way too many years for the sapling to be a fully grown oxygen emitting tree. So we can’t depend on just planting trees, again that doesn’...

Every single tree counts a green world – together let’s make it happen!

Did you know that all around the world, 3 to 6 billion trees are cut down each and every year. This has to do with the demand for goods that are produced from trees. Writing paper and household tissues are an illustration of this, as well as the timber used to construct homes. And unfortunately, we need the things that the trees produce but we can do something about the depletion of our forests. Trees are celebrated on Arbor Day and the idea is that we should plant trees at that time but this is not really tackling the issue. This is because virtually all individuals aren’t going out and plant...

Grow And Save Trees

Trees protect the environment against soil erosion, siltation and flooding. Soil erosion causes us to lose valuable agricultural soil to our dams and the sea. Siltation is when soil ends up in our Rivers and dams. This has an impact on flow rate of the river making it more easy to flood as well as reduce the capacity of the dams. As water moves quicker over terrain devoid of vegetation rivers tend to flood easier and more severely. So planting trees reduces the flow and therefore the thread of flooding. Score of animals live in trees and the habitat that they provide. A single tree is good, cl...

Reduce Pollution, Save Earth

Everyone talks of pollution now-a-days, many organisations too have sprung up for this cause. We depend on these organisations to control pollution but, little do we care about our own contribution towards controlling pollution.

Small changes in our lifestyle could make a considerable impact on our environment. It doesn’t takes much effort to make a few ordinary changes in our lifestyle which will be beneficia...

RELATION OF PAPER AND TREE…SAVE TREE AND LIVE AN AWESOME LIFE….

Many people have heard the statistic that “a ton of recycled paper saves 17 trees.” The “17 trees” number was popularized by Conservatree when it was a paper distributor, based on a report to Congress in the 1970s. It was calculated for newsprint, which is made in a totally different papermaking process from office and printing papers. But it was the best number anyone had, so it became the number everyone used to calculate number of trees saved by recycled paper, or number of trees cut to make virgin paper, no matter what type of paper they were talking about. Paper is made from a mix of typ...

CONSIDERATIONS IN CALCULATING TREES TO PAPER

What kind of paper are you talking about? Paper made in a “mechanical” or “groundwood” process (e.g. newsprint, telephone directories, base sheet for low-cost coated magazine and catalog papers) uses trees about twice as efficiently as paper made in the “kraft” or “freesheet” process (e.g. office and printing papers, letterhead, business cards, copy paper, base sheet for higher-quality coated magazine and catalog papers, advertising papers, offset papers). Is the paper “coated” or “uncoated”? The fiber in a coated paper (most often used for magazines and catalogs, with a clay coating that may...

Disadvantages of Plywood

While plywood is a versatile, strong, and durable material, it is not without disadvantages. Plywood is subject to a variety of problems, both from its unsuitability for certain purposes and from environmental hazards. Used incorrectly, plywood can rapidly fail. Even when used within the manufacturer’s specifications, plywood can and will fail eventually. Size Plywood is available “off the shelf” almost exclusively in unwieldy 4-foot-by-8-foot sheets. Plywood comes in a variety of thicknesses, but the only means of changing the thickness to suit a particular need is by gluing sheets together....
