What Would Happen If There Were No Trees On Earth?

Did you ever thought that why trees are important in our life?
Do we have enough trees?
What would happen if there were no trees?

These are the questions that we must have to ask from ourselves, from other people. Because, one of the most valuable natural resources is plants. There would be no life on earth without plants. The earth is fortunate to have plants and in abundant number. There would be no human population on the planet if it not were for plants. No life is possible on the earth without plants. Life could not exist on Earth without trees because they produce most of the oxygen that humans and wildlife breathe. Trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and release oxygen using the process of photosynthesis. There would also be no rain without trees.

Now you would think why trees are important for us?
Do you know?

Importance of Plants:
Plants recycle the air around us. They take in the carbon dioxide which we breathe out and convert it into oxygen and breathe it out. People use indoor plants so as to keep the air purified and fresh. Animals use plants as their food and so do humans. Starting from the grains found in the cereals to orange juice, we intake plants. Certain plants are the oldest life forms on earth.

Plants exist in plentiful number on the earth, with about 300,000 species. The unique ability of plants is that they produce their own food using energy from the sun. People should appreciate the value of plants because they are an invaluable part of the Earths ecosystem. Plants provide people with an abundance of food either directly or indirectly. There are millions of vegetable, fruit and seed producing plants which are used by people for food.
Now, these are the things that almost all people know. Don’t you think?

Life without Plants:
Life without plants would be a difficult and unimaginable life. There would be no trees or bushes around our house. The sunlight would enter into the house directly. There would be no shade by the side of the roads. Without plants, the playgrounds, lawns and gardens would be mere solid ground. The cattle will die because of lack of plantation to eat.

The cows, buffalos, goats etc. depend heavily on the plants and leaves for their nutrition, which if not given will result in the death of the aforementioned. There would be no forests and hence no fresh air. The trees help in giving us the oxygen we breathe by absorbing the carbon dioxide in the air. Without plants, this difficulty would arise.
In various parts of the world, ninety percent of people live in houses with no electricity. Household energy in the form of charcoal and wood are provided by the plants. Hundreds and thousands of people would perish without the availability of this fuel source.

In the absence of plants, nutrient-rich topsoil would be no more, making it enormously difficult to grow food and sustain life. Certain plants have chemicals which when isolated in a lab, can help treat people suffering from different diseases.

Here are some of the best reasons to plant and care for trees or defend a tree’s standing:

  • Trees clean the air
  • Trees absorb odors and pollutant gasses (nitrogen oxides, ammonia, sulfur dioxide and ozone) and filter particulates out of the air by trapping them on their leaves and bark.
  • Trees provide oxygen
  • In one year an acre of mature trees can provide enough oxygen for 18 people.
  • Trees shield children from ultra-violet rays
  • Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. Trees reduce UV-B exposure by about 50 percent, thus providing protection to children on school campuses and playgrounds – where children spend hours outdoors.
  • Trees provide food
  • An apple tree can yield up to 15-20 bushels of fruit per year and can be planted on the tiniest urban lot. Aside from fruit for humans, trees provide food for birds and wildlife.
  • Trees reduce violence
  • Neighborhoods and homes that are barren have shown to have a greater incidence of violence in and out of the home than their greener counterparts. Trees and landscaping help to reduce the level of fear.

Have you ever done plantation?
It is our hadith also as:

This was our project and ALHUMDULILLAH we did this project successfully and still active for the accomplishment of this task to make our Pakistan Green. Our campaign was named as “GREEN PAKISTAN”. This campaign was started on August 14th, 2018.

We planted more than 3000 trees in Lahore and it’s just a start. We have a strong belief that our campaign will reach out to its maximum level. And our mission will be fulfilled. Are you with us to make this Pakistan Green?

Make this Pakistan, greener, more beautiful and more peaceful.
Be a part of us in this campaign.

Join hands with Zanoor for this noble cause.
