Benefits of Tree Planting
One of nature’s greatest resources, trees provide countless benefits to the world around us. From improving air quality to enriching soil, trees provide countless benefits that are invaluable for the long-term health of our farms. Planting a tree is our little gift to the next generation.
Here are a few reasons why you should consider planting a tree:
1. Trees are Natural Filters
By absorbing carbon dioxide, odors and other pollutants, and producing oxygen, trees give us the air we all need to live. Removing pollutants from the air can have a significant impact on reducing smog and overall air pollution. More trees mean better air quality for generations to come.
2. Trees are Natural Stabilizers
Not only do trees filter air, but they also filter water runoff by reducing potential sources of water pollution into our rivers and waterways and absorbing pollutants. Pollutants act as a fertilizer for trees, scattering into tiny pores on leaves. This keeps the soil for our farms healthy and thriving, even turning what might seem to be unusable land into rich soil that can be used for current and future farmers.
3. Trees are Natural Protectors
Tree roots serve as anchors to provide shade, while their leaves easily absorb water, reducing evaporation from surrounding areas. This is critical to protecting the land around us. Home to many animals, trees also provide a source of food and a safe space for shelter.
Changing the future of our environment is a group effort, and Maola is taking a stance. In 2022, Maola planted more than 4,000 trees in our local communities with an ongoing commitment to continue the mission of sustainability on our farms and beyond. By keeping trees alive, we keep the world going and can leave it a better place than we found it. It can be as easy as planting one tree: the gift that keeps on giving!
