It is and every citizen of this planet with fertile soil should be obliged to plant trees, trees are very important a lot of floods are caused by lacks of trees, we need a lot of trees because illegal logging is on the rise they are cutting trees for money, it's very important to our ecosystem without them we are doomed.

I am not that convinced about this forest planting theory. Trees do absorb carbon from the atmosphere. But they store the carbon in their wood and release it when they die. Also, in my area I have seen a lot of grasslands being converted to artificial forests. They are disrupting the natural ecology by doing this. The ecosystem that existed earlier won't be able to survive once the trees are planted.

It's interesting how on this thread many have asserted the goodness of planting trees, but not one has made an effort to prove it.

This is probably because, of the generality of this information about the benefits of trees in human lives and environments. So the assumptions that people made in this thread are most probably based on that information. In addition, some of the ideas given in this thread are from personal experiences.

Speaking as someone who has planted hundreds of trees, and carefully observed which lived, which didn't and why, I'm not convinced that the average person "planting trees because it's a good thing" does anything other than waste their time.

Now if they want to learn something, they can all start digging holes under my direction.

Why did the room get empty so suddenly?

tree's benefit carbon, benefit human lungs
tree's benefit the lumber industry

when lumber companies can plant tree's at no cost due to donations/grants from charity/government. it makes them instant profit at time of chopping them down and turning them into planks a couple decades later

here is some factual carbon stats
normal rainforests per hectare: absorb ~40tonnes of carbon. release 7tonnes of oxygen
oil palm plantation per hectare: absorb ~60tonnes of carbon. release 18tonnes of oxygen

this is because palm oil requires different amount of hydrocarbons/carbohydrates.

so when you pay some environmental charities to plant high carbon absorbing high oxygen releasing plants. the money can end up in the deforestation companies that turn old rainforests into palm tree plantations. because yep. good for human lungs.

some then argue its destroying natural habitats for tribes and wildlife. but thats another debate aside from the carbon one

..
its much like paying carbon tax.. where funds end up as 'R&D' funds for fossil companies to pay for conversion to renewables. yep examples of UK national grid allience are not paying for renewables out of their own profits, not out the goodness of their hearts. government funding and grants pay for their conversions

I DO NOT TRADE OR ACT AS ESCROW ON THIS FORUM EVER.
Please do your own research & respect what is written here as both opinion & information gleaned from experience. many people replying with insults but no on-topic content substance, automatically are 'facepalmed' and yawned at

As someone who happens to also experience that planting tree drives. Planting trees doesn't end in just planting a seedling in a forest/mountain. The real thing about this is how to nurture and cultivate those trees. I am not a fan of those planting thousands of trees in one day just for the commercialization of it, and fact that they think they actually help. But instead, only 1/8 or less of those trees can lived due to lack of nutrition in soil and many other aspects.

The people who brag about their planting of 100's etc. are most likely a social climber who want to make themselves feel highly just because they think they made an awesome change for their surrounding.

On the other hand, there are many people who actually made time to nurture seedlings in forest and sees them grow. I actually watched a person in the Philippines, who plant hundreds of trees, and nurtured them but can't search the news article for it.

Is planting trees actually good for the planet?


It depends on what percent of them survive the planting.

The. Importance of tree to the environment are enormous both from it abiotic and biotic factors. Environmentally Trees 🌲 beautify environment and gives it colorful look. In time of environmental disasters trees help is controlling erosion and leaching, trees help to control excessive wind. Trees brings shade and makes the surrounding cool in hot days. Lots of good medicine have been discovered some special trees and the herbs help in saving life’s. Trees are used for beautification and it’s also supply man with oxygen to breath.

I agree with you, Trees are important for all of us and everyone can feel the difference. Especially this year again we had the highest temperatures in years in my country. Being in the forest instead of the city makes such a huge difference to climate. We feel much better and can relax more than staying in the city during summer.

Trees are our closest friends. It protects our ozone layer as well as regulates the weather. Take a look at the Amazon rainforest in Brazil. By burning it we have dripped the heart of the weather. Then the COVID-19 invaded our hearts. It is not possible to benefit by harming anyone. The importance of the tree should be realized by everyone after this.

I believe botanist are the best at what ways and soil is best for a tree special and the best care that could be given to it and you might be a botanist yourself, I don't know that so I won't want to comment on that either but then, I don't so much agree with the idea that an average person planting trees is just a waste of time.

If it is about the fact that, planting non native species or invasive species could be harmful to the vegetation of that environment and in turn the environment itself, that I would understand but then, should native species be planted, even if it didn't get to grow to its full potential, for the years it did grew and persisted, it surely helped as cover crop, air cycles (Carbon, nitrogen etc) and shelter for aboral and terrestrial animals including the microbes so, it did help and it isn't a total waste of time.

A botanist really would be an expert, but you won't expect them to plant as many trees for the environment itself, they are busy doing their researches about plants, discovering something, and many more. A lot of documents and articles can be easily found in the internet, and you don't need a degree for that.

What I am going through with this is that anyone can plant trees and make it work for the environment, it is just that if they really care about the planting itself, they would go through the ways on how to nurture it, how to plant it, the distance needed between them.

But aside that, I agree that trees are really helpful, if that is what just this thread is asking.

One neglected aspect of arboriculture is the treatment of "dead" trees. When a tree can no longer stand on its own roots, and it falls to the ground, it should be left to decay naturally. This allows beetles and other creatures to find food and homes, and the activities of fungi help to maintain a healthy soil balance.

Benefits of planting trees for health and the environment

1. Make the air fresher
2. Maintain mental health
3. Reducing exposure to UV rays to the skin
4. Reducing the impacts of climate change
5. Prevent water pollution
6. Increase groundwater reserves
7. Maintain the population of living things
8. Prevent flooding
9. Prevent soil erosion

carbon dioxide & oxygen has nothing to do with trees because the oxygen and carbon dioxide levels in the earth are fixed (can't increase or decrease)..
