Benefits of Tree Planting

You can easily buttress the soil by planting trees. Besides this, trees will maintain the soil moisture as well as improve its fertility. Where the trees drop their leaves on the soil surface, it helps in preventing moisture loss by lowering the temperature of the soil and the leaves will eventually decay and turn into manure which enriches the soil. With this condition, there will be increased microbial activities in the soil which increases the aeration of the soil.
The erosion of the soil can be avoided by planting the trees. Where there is wind or heavy rainfall, soil erosion occurs due to the heavy drops from the sky. These drops tend to splash the soil after reaching the ground hence causing soil erosion. Where the wind blows on bear land, it sweeps away the soil causing erosion. Roots of trees enhances soil compatibility which works against occurrence of soil erosion.
Where the trees have been planted there will be reduced rates of water pollution. Water that is due to storm often contains very harmful substances like phosphorus. Where the trees are not present, this water will find its way to water sources hence contaminating it. You will find out that most of the aquatic life will be cut short due to the poisonous gases in the water. Planting trees will hold the contaminated water from entering these sources instead directs it into the soil by the assist of their roots.
Tree planting is also essential in cooling down the streets which could have otherwise been greatly affected by global warming. The reason behind this is that trees are effective in cooling the temperatures that could be extreme and at the same time trap the dangerous gases from the air. There are so many people in the cities and in a case of global warming which could have occurred by replacing the trees on streets by the asphalt roads many will be affected The many and high buildings in the cities with no trees greatly increases the chances for global warming.
