Why grow trees ?

Trees are the world’s single largest source of breathable oxygen. They are under threat, which means we are under threat. Since the beginning, trees have furnished us with two of life's essentials, food and oxygen. Today, their value continues to increase and more benefits of trees are being discovered as their role expands to satisfy the needs created by our modern lifestyles.

Health of our body and mind to a great degree depends upon the amount of pure, fresh air we breathe. Trees produce oxygen that we breathe and clean the air by acting as giant filters, removing harmful particles and pollutants. Trees also clean our atmosphere by intercepting airborne particles, and by absorbing ground-level ozone, carbon monoxide, sulphur dioxide, and other greenhouse gases.

Let us restore ecology and grow forests

There is no substitute for clean water. Water is a vital resource that we rely on every day. We can’t create something else to take its place.. But we can plant trees. One way to protect and clean our water supply is to plant trees, and the need to replant our nation’s forests is vitally important.

Trees improve water quality by slowing rain as it falls to the Earth, helping it soak into the soil. They also prevent soil from eroding into waterways, reduce storm water runoff, and lessen flood damage.

Trees serve as natural filters to protect our streams, rivers and lakes. The need is on creating conservation easements along streams and reservoirs, and protecting forest lands to keep sediment and runoff from entering the water supply.

An example from the US - When you drink a glass of tap water in a New York City restaurant, you’re drinking water that was filtered largely by the forests of upstate New York. The forests do such a good job that the city only needs to do a minimum of additional filtering. This is just an example of how our national forests help clean the water.

The ability of forest vegetation and soils to absorb and filter water also increases groundwater, as clean water trickles down to feed aquifers that may be tapped hundreds of miles away by thirsty cities. This same capacity to absorb water helps moderate runoff during rainstorms, and is one reason that cities around the nation are aggressively planting trees.

AGRO FORESTRY

Trees serve as natural filters to protect our streams, rivers and lakes. The need is on creating conservation easements along streams and reservoirs, and protecting forest lands to keep sediment and runoff from entering the water supply.

Agroforestry differs from traditional forestry and agriculture by its focus on the interactions among components rather than just on the individual components themselves. It raises the bar with its belief that any endeavour in organic farming has to be eco sustainable, should keep carbon emissions low and reduce its carbon footprints.

By allowing more than one species to be present on a particular piece of land, sylviculture simulates and mimics the diversity of the natural ecosystem, giving in our case the teak trees a likeness to the natural habitat in which they grow. This encourages a larger level of biodiversity to exist on the land. Agro forestry has a lot in common with intercropping. Both have two or more plant species (such as nitrogen-fixing plants) in close interaction with each other, both provide multiple outputs, and as a consequence, higher overall yields. Because a single application is shared, costs are reduced

To support Agro Forestry, it is extremely important to include all forms of life such as microorganisms, plants or animals. Diversity in the kinds of creatures is extremely vital to the health of any ecosystem.
