Trees help in building soil, moreover, they help soak up stormwater before it can lead to a flood. They also offer energy-saving shade that reduces global warming and creates habitat for thousands of different species. And most importantly, can help remove carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases from the air, which cools the earth.
