Environment

Many people who plant trees do so to make their property more aesthetically pleasing. However, trees do much more than look good.

Currently In Australia our primary source of energy comes from coal mined from the ground. In the process of making energy we burn this coal releasing carbon dioxide (Co2) into the atmosphere. But, where does it go from there?

The answer is trees. A mature forrest can soke up 440 tonnes of atmosperic carbon dioxide per hectare once fully grown. In fact, the tree itself is made from the carbon it takes from the atmosphere. Carbon is the building block of life.

It is important that we remove the Co2 from the atmosphere and store it in living organisms, such as trees because the trees we plant today will one day in millions of years time be the coal that we burn to make energy.
