Tree Facts
Trees are an essential life support system for our planet - here's why:

Why do we need trees?

  • Trees absorb vast amounts of carbon dioxide each year and release oxygen (fresh air).

  • Humans cannot live without trees.

  • I acre of trees can produce enough oxygen to keep 18 people alive.

  • Oak trees can live for over 1,000 years. They can produce 750,000 leaves and each can produce enough oxygen for 10 people to breathe.

  • Trees are also excellent biological filters and absorb (in addition to carbon dioxide, sulphur dioxide and chlorofluorocarbons) which are caused by air conditioning units and fridges.

  • Trees are also essential for climate control, oxygen, pollution control, flood prevention, the prevention of soil erosion, to provide food, medicine and shelter. Over 2,000 different species of trees provide a form of medicine.

More powerful facts

  • 1 acre of trees can store 2.5 tonnes of carbon each year.

  • 100 acres of trees are felled somewhere around the world for every minute that passes around the clock.

  • The smallest tree on the planet is 2” high, the Arctic Willow. The largest tree recorded, a Giant Redwood, is 311 feet tall and weighs 1,500 tonnes.

  • The common oak comes in somewhere in between, at 80ft tall.
