Why plant a tree?

Trees are essential to maintain a good balance on Earth and among its inhabitants
They produce oxygen

Using photosynthesis, a tree converts water and carbon dioxide into enough oxygen to sustain two people for a year.

They help fight climate change

In order to grow, a tree spends its lifetime feeding off carbon dioxide. With an average consumption of 10kg of carbon dioxide a year, a tree helps reduce the additional amount of CO2 in the atmosphere which is accelerating climate change.

Trees improve the quality of water

A tree filters and recycles rainwater through its roots and leaves, and converts it into clean drinking water. This 100% natural process is essential to restocking and stabilising groundwater levels.

Trees reduce erosion

Tree roots are essential for preventing landslides by holding the ground and fighting erosion, especially near riverbanks, slopes and embankments. In arid countries, trees form a natural barrier against desert progression.

They ensure biodiversity

Trees and forests host, feed and shelter 80% of all terrestrial animal species.

They are an essential source for human life

Sources of food (fruit, mushrooms, game, etc.), firewood, timber and even medication, trees and forests provide a livelihood to 1.6 billion people.
