The major catastrophic events that brought chaos on earth is said to be the ice age and asteroid in Jurassic era, which wiped out millions of species from the face of the earth. The world forest has reduced to merely 20% of what it used to be there few years ago. And the ma...

Plant More Trees To Save The Earth

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...

If You Put All Earth’s Water In One Place, It’d Look Like This!!

While it looks like the planet’s surface is covered mostly in water, the fact is there is very little water on this planet when you compare it to the size of the planet as a whole. The USGS created this image to give us a little perspective. USGS states, “About 70 percent of the Earth’s surface is water-covered, and the oceans hold about 96.5 percent of all Earth’s water. But water also exists in the air as water vapor, in rivers and lakes, in icecaps and glaciers, in the ground as soil moisture and in aquifers, and even in you and your dog. Still, all that water would fit into that “tiny” bal...

How does cutting down trees affect us and our environment?

Trees give out oxygen, even because of them we have the rains, in short they maintain the ecological balance. If we would cut trees what is going to happen is that population won’t stop growing but oxygen in the atmosphere will reduce. Another effect can be scarcity of food. and many other problems are attached to it such as less of rains will result in less water for irrigation. Less water for irrigation would result in less harvest which would again lead to less food and if this continues to happen for a long period of time then it might lead to famine type situations. Trees have to breathe...
