    Without Trees we would have significantly less species diversity, less oxygen, less soil retention meaning poorer quality soils meaning less crops and foods, more flooding and pollution - all of which would lead to increased social conflict as wars ensue over diminishing resources. Think Planet and Plant A Tree!!

    A keystone species is a species that has a disproportionately large effect on its environment relative to its abundance. Such species are described as playing a critical role in maintaining the structure of an ecological community, affecting many other organisms in an ecosystem and helping to determine the types and numbers of various other species in the community.

    Trees combat climate change by absorbing CO2, removing and storing the carbon while releasing the oxygen back into the air.
    Trees clean the air by absorbing odors and pollutant gases (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 save water, their shade slows evaporation from the soils.
    Trees help prevent water pollution by reducing runoff by breaking rainfall thus allowing the water to flow down the trunk and into the earth below the tree. This prevents stormwater from carrying pollutants to the ocean.
    Tree help prevent soil erosion, on hillsides or stream slopes, trees slow runoff and hold soil in place,
    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,
    Trees provide a canopy and habitat for wildlife including all sorts of birds, invaluable bees and many more species of insect and small mammals.

    Think Tree if you care about the world environment, species diversity, your own or your childrens well being, life as we know it.

    'The Tree Of Life' is a 'Universal' symbol found in many 'Spiritual' traditions symbolizing Life itself, such as the Norse 'Yggdrasil' and the 'Celtic' 'Tree Of Life', its branches reaching to the Heavens, its roots linking to 'Mother Earth'. As such 'The Tree of Life' provides a mystical metaphor for the interconnectedness of all life on planet Earth.
    Here the mysterious 'Green Man' Guardian Of 'The Tree Of Life' shares his wisdom with the Hobbit like Farmer Foolhardy, and provides a cautionary tale for us all.
