Trees are natural perennial plants commonly recognized for purifying the air and attracting rainfall.

Some of the trees are grown by human beings while many of the trees go naturally. It is interesting living in a land covered by dense trees and I have always liked the atmosphere created by trees. I love trees because I understand their importance to our environment. LIVEPAPERHELP.COM is able to write and provide the best tailor made essay on Trees Are My Best Friends! There has been a continued debate to conserve trees because of their advantages to our living environment. Many organizations have been formed to help advice people on the importance of trees in our environment but all in vain. Human beings have continued to cut down trees. This paper therefore examines importance of trees, reasons why people cut down trees and what are the implications of deforestation to our environment. Talk of the world’s most regular campaign and I will tell you the various campaigns to help conserve trees. There campaigns have regularly reminded individuals on the importance of trees and on the need to conserve the trees. I have also formed one agency which has helped several trips around the world to encourage people plant more trees. According to science, trees are associated to attracting rainfall. This greatly proves why the regions along the equatorials have heavy rainfall patterns. Trees are also known to conserve soil by: reducing the rate if soil erosion by holding the soil firm, conserving the soil fertility by supplying nitrogen in to the soil and by significantly contributing in the weathering process of soil by roots breaking up the soil structure. These are some of the benefits I have taught people of as I move round the world. These are also the positive benefits of trees i.e. the benefits that trees bring to us without us interrupting their lives. As we were moving around the world, we asked people to explain to...

Nature our best friend Trees – Nature’s Gift to Man. Of all the living beings inhabiting this earth, trees are out best friends. Mother Nature,inher infinite wisdom, has gifted them to man to live in harmony with him and to be of greatserviceto him.Besides fruits, trees provide important raw materials for our industries. Industriesprovide employment to people. The wood for furniture, housing, railway carriages and shipscome from trees. Wood is also used for fuel and for making charcoal which is used as fuel.From trees we get wood - pulp to make paper and artificial yarns (like nylon). Trees also giveus products such as spices, rubber, turpentine, eucalyptus oil and gum. We also get honey andmany valuable things for medicine from forests.We get so many things from forests that forests are rightly known as µ green gold¶Trees provide shade to tired travellers and animals and shelter to innumerable birds andinsects. Trees keep the environment clean. They absorb harmful carbon dioxide from the air and fill the atmosphere with precious life - sustaining oxygen. In this way they reduce air pollution. Therefore, trees are called the lungs of nature. Forests retain humidity and attractrains. There will be no rain if there are no trees. It is for this reason that trees are known asrain catchers.In fact, all our basic necessities like, air, water, food, clothing and shelter comedirectly or indirectly from trees. We thus, owe our very existence to trees.If there were no trees, there would be no rain and land would turn into an ariddesert.Mankind would perish for want of food, drinking water, fresh air and sufficient humidity.Sowe should ever remain grateful to trees A plantcannot tell the difference between man-made nutrients made from fossil fuel or those releasedfrom organic matter in the soil by microbes. Synthetic fertilizer, though, only provides nutrientsand does nothing to increase water-holding capacity, reduce runoff, improve soil structure or any of the other benefits of using an organic soil amendment.Organic compost is the dark brown, crumbly material that remains after microbes havedecomposed yard waste, cow manure, food waste or other organic material. It directly andindirectly provides a wide range of essential nutrients, sugars and other complex biochemicalsthat are a rich source of complete nutrition for plants. In a word, it is fertility, the way Mother Nature Provides.
Soil is composed of minerals and decomposed organic matter. In landscaped beds, mulchbreaks down, and the soil becomes more fertile over time. Take away the organic matter andyou have a sterile growing medium poorly suited to growing anything requiring fertile soil. Inmuch of Florida, we have sand that will best support plants adapted to low availability of water and nutrients. It is this ability to thrive in Florida's sandy soil and climate that makes drought-tolerant native plants a particularly good choice to consider for those unable to improve soilfertility with organic matter. Where we get in trouble is when we attempt to grow in sterile soil plants that require highfertility conditions to thrive. An example would be St. Augustine grass. We succeed only by thefrequent addition of water and inorganic fertilizer. The long-term consequences of thisapproach can be seen in the depletion of water supplies and the progressive deterioration of water quality due to fertilizer runoff and accumulation in water bodies.Fertility enhancement is only one benefit of building up organic matter. Soil organics also storeexcess nutrients, accelerate breakdown of both thatch and pesticide residues, improve soilstructure and reduce incidence and severity of soil-borne lawn grass diseases. Those are a lotof essential functions provided by such a humble material. The lack of a significant level of soilorganics costs a lot in the form of higher water bills, stormwater management, frequentfertilization and use of chemicals to control insect pests and disease. And some of thesebenefits may be unattainable in any other way at any reasonable cost.If compost is such a miracle material in the landscape, why do so many go without itsbenefits? It may be that a backyard compost bin is prohibited by deed restriction in your community, and even if it weren't, would it be capable of (producing) the volume required for even a small lawn? To apply just half an inch of compost as a top-dressing to an existing lawnwould require a whole cubic yard to cover just 650 square feet. And with a cubic yard of compost weighing half a ton, do

we have the time, energy and stamina to apply it in 95-degreetemperatures and near 100 percent humidity?
