Trees are essential for generating rain and for forming rivers, forest provide the humidity necessary for the formation of mountain glaciers.
#2: Trees conserve carbon in soils as well as in their own biomass.
#3: Reforestation provides long term carbon sink and improves soils and improves soils, also helping to recover, the regional hydro-logical cycle which can affect the global climate.
#4: Forests bring about cooling. Forest regeneration in degraded and deforested areas contributing to global cooling and combats global warming.
#5: Trees sustain communities living around the forest ecosystem.
