Planting trees can support the natural environment positively and have meaningful effects on social life. Planting trees can reduce and destroy the green house related effects, purify the air pollution, can add oxygen to the atmosphere, support to cool down the temperature on roads and towns, and also save the energy on cooling/heating machineries etc.
Planting trees also support to reduce global warming system. A tree with an average age , can create sufficient oxygen for a family of four members. The volume of oxygen that produces from a well grown tree in one minute is sufficient enough for ten persons to inhale.
If a huge tree in properly and systematically taken care in a garden, the volume of oxygen it produces is equivalent to the air condition that operates 20 hours in a day for ten rooms.
