Summary In the article, its stated that about how trees had been decreased by 46% since the human civilization began. The scientist stated that the cause of the loss of trees were human activity, through deforestation and 15 billion trees were lost every year. The effects on how the trees were decreasing impacted on human health and on climate, it shows how we humans need much more effort to restore our healthy forests worldwide. The largest tropical forests has 43% of the world's trees and the highest density of trees are in the subarctic regions of Russia, Scandinavia and North America. There are 3.04 trillion trees, which is 422 trees for every person on the planet, and the tree census help identify the issue about any species, effects of climate change, and trees help the environment.
Trees are the most important and critical organisms on Earth, plays a major role on reducing greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Forests absorbs and reserve carbon dioxide during photosynthesis and then release the oxygen in the atmosphere. Trees absorbs carbon dioxide are key for the cycling of nutrients, quality of air and water, for human needs, and they're role is the global carbon cycle. Plant for the Planet is a youth group where scientist handle on the information about trees, they use super computing technologies to know the census about trees and forests. The scientists are calculating how many trees were lost and how it comes to the point where all the trees are decreasing.
My Reflection I chose this article because I want to know on how much trees, we, humans, consume. Trees are important for us and for the environment because they give off oxygen, the one we breathe in, and they absorbed carbon dioxide, the one we breathe out. I like trees because they me this nice feeling whenever I see them, I usually feel peace whenever I see them. The most interesting to me is that how much trees we consume per year, and how much trees were left on Earth just because of human needs and services. Only for a short amount of time were left before all the trees were gone, we should take care of it now than regret it later in the future.
