Are you aware that all over 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 huge demand in the marketplace. For instance, paper is needed both in the home and workplace and lumber is used in the construction of homes. We all must assume responsibility in preserving our woodlands even if there are items we have to use that are made from trees.
Trees are celebrated on Arbor Day and the idea is that we should plant trees at that time but this is not really dealing with the issue. This is because nearly all folks aren’t going out and planting a tree. It would help, of course, if everyone planted a tree.
There may be seven billion humans alive in the world right now. The actual numbers obviously fluctuate and so this is a calculated estimate. The number of trees worldwide would be restored if every individual planted a tree on Arbor Day. Unfortunately, this is never going to happen.
Hence, the solution 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 suggest you just do this on a certain day every year. Once a month is a good target or why not every week? It is just a fact that some individuals will not give any thought to conservation or planting trees, so we must make up for this ourselves.
Would you believe that on Arbor Day, only approximately 8 and 15 million trees are planted? Hence every year, we are short by more or less 5 billion trees. This situation continues to deteriorate.
Whereas people need to make the effort to plant trees, I have an idea that might resolve this once and for all. If a law could be enacted that whenever a tree is cut down by logging companies, they then had to plant two new ones, this could genuinely make a big difference.
But then, until someone has the presence of mind to make this a reality, we are left to take care of planting the trees ourselves. Trying to keep those tree numbers up will not actually take a great deal of effort. The number of trees felled each year could be replaced if ten percent of the world’s population planted one tree each month. Around 7 billion new trees would be achieved by doing this. And that 1 billion excess trees are just what we need in order to get our tree population back to where it has to be.
So for anyone who desires to make a positive difference to our environment, go plant a tree. Once again, it only takes 10% of our population to start making a difference. You can make the decision to help out.
