How trees are important to us?
Why are trees so important? Trees are vital. As the biggest plants on the planet, they give us oxygen, store carbon, stabilise the soil and give life to the world's wildlife. They also provide us with the materials for tools and shelter.
Trees contribute to their environment by providing oxygen, improving air quality, climate amelioration, conserving water, preserving soil, and supporting wildlife. During the process of photosynthesis, trees take in carbon dioxide and produce the oxygen we breathe.
- Most climbers need support to which their new growths can cling or twine around. Trained plants such as espalier or fan-shaped fruit trees depend on horizontal wires for support.
- Give the vines plenty of space; some varieties can grow 15 feet (4.6m) in a single season. Since most morning glory vines die every year, allowing your morning glory to climb living trees is acceptable as the vines will not harm the tree. (Don't try this in areas with mild winters, which morning glories can survive.)
- In USDA plant hardiness zones 10 and 11, morning glories will grow as perennials. In winter or early spring, cut back morning glory vines grown as perennials to about 6 inches above the ground. This gets rid of old, tired growth and encourages them to come back strong and vigorous.
Some of these are products most people wouldn't think originated from trees, which only further exemplifies the value of preserving our trees and forests!

- Plastics are derived from materials found in nature, such as natural gas, oil, coal, minerals and plants. The very first plastics were made by nature—did you know that rubber from a rubber tree is actually a plastic? The first synthetic plastics were derived from cellulose, a substance found in plants and trees.

- Advantages of Solar Energy
- Renewable Energy Source. Among all the benefits of solar panels, the most important thing is that solar energy is a truly renewable energy source.
- Reduces Electricity Bills.
- Diverse Applications.
- Low Maintenance Costs.
- Technology Development.
- Weather Dependent.
- Solar Energy Storage Is Expensive.
