The Benefits of Trees
In recent years the weather patterns are nothing short of crazy. While parts of the Northern Hemisphere are suffering intolerable cold conditions with floods and excessive winds and snow falls in the Southern Hemisphere there is extensive droughts, floods, winds and other horrors like super fires. In Australia as elsewhere the droughts have cost lives as farmers kill off their animals and dig crops into the ground.
Those crying the loudest about the drought gripping their livelihoods are pictured on acreage where there is barely a tree in sight. The land is devoid of any shade and animals suffer in extreme temperatures of 40* and more on many days.
Where winds are roaring over the ground bare of any covering it picks up speed and before long is cyclonic in its nature. It rips up whatever lies in its path and as the earth warms due to climate change things are worsening.
This planet was designed with trees to provide shade, remove carbon from the atmosphere and make oxygen that is released through their leaves. They are also habitats for birds, animals and insects dependent on them for their survival. Man, however, appears to have a war on trees as they are brought down to the ground and often burned.
In rainforests one can see the water that trees pass into the atmosphere which is then part of the hydration system of the planet. They are, however, being removed to make way for more agriculture and animal rearing. The ideas that promote no trees in these circumstances are prominent world-wide.
So what is the value of keeping trees on properties where animal husbandry and farming takes place? Aside from the obvious trees cool the ground and is can be several degrees lower in temperature under a tree than in the open. With rising temperatures one would think the removal of them would be considered a crime as we are all suffering the effects.
