  27. 27. HOW DO TREES HELP? • Trees are green machines that act as natural filters of our air • Through photosynthesis trees absorb carbon dioxide (a key GHG and principle contributor to global warming) from the atmosphere while releasing oxygen back out • They store carbon in the trunk, branches, leaves, roots, soil and foliage • Half a tree's mass is carbon, so large amounts of carbon are stored in forests¹ ¹ Cooperative Research Centre for Greenhouse Accounting, Australia Plant Trees Today with www.onemilliontrees.org
  28. 28. HOW DO TREES HELP? • As globally important storehouses of carbon, forests play a critical role in influencing the Earth's climate² •Forests are also crucial sources of food, medicine and clean drinking water for millions of people. •Tropical deforestation is responsible for approximately 20% of total human-caused carbon dioxide emissions each year³ •A tree will absorb approximately 20.3 kg of CO2 per year over its lifetime •If planted now, your trees should outlive you ² Union of Concerned Scientists, USA Plant Trees Today with www.onemilliontrees.org ³ Cooperative Research Centre for Greenhouse Accounting, Australia
