Trees play a very important role in the stabilization of the earth's environment. When most of us look at trees, we look at them from an aesthetic prospective. While they are important aesthetically, they also serve a multitude of purposes in sustaining life on Earth.
- Providing shade, which helps conserve energy (which in turn helps reduce pollution)
- Helping cleanse the air by absorbing harmful carbon dioxide and replacing it with life-giving oxygen
