Amazon Tree Facts


SAVE THE AMAZON FOREST

In 50 years one tree recycles more than $37,000 worth of water, provides $31,000 worth of erosion control, $62,000 worth of air pollution control, and produces $37,000 worth of oxygen.

Trees help reduce the "greenhouse effect" by absorbing CO2. One acre of trees removes 2.6 tons of CO2 per year.

Forest planting is one of the most cost-effective ways of reducing CO2.

By cooling the air and ground around them, the shade from trees helps cool the Earth's temperature.

Trees are good noise barriers, making a city and neighborhood quieter.

Trees help prevent city flooding by catching raindrops and offsetting runoff caused by buildings and parking lots.

Hospital patients heal faster, require shorter stays and less painkillers if room windows face trees.

A tree-line buffer between fields and streams helps remove farming pollutants before they reach the water.

Well placed trees help cut energy costs and consumption by decreasing air conditioning costs 10-50% & reducing heating costs as much as 4-22%.

Trees are the longest living and largest living organisms on Earth.

In deserts, leaves absorb moisture from the dew and frost of the cool nights and release it to cool the air during the warm days.

Trees enhance the aesthetics of our environment. Their grandeur, tenacity, and beauty are probably the most enjoyable aspect of trees.

Tree bark and fruit have many medicinal properties, which are still being discovered. *In 50 years one tree recycles more than $37,000 worth of water, provides $31,000 worth of erosion control, $62,000 worth of air pollution control, & produces $37,000 worth of oxygen.

One person causes about 10 tons of carbon dioxide to be emitted a year. One tree removes about 1 ton of CO2 per year. Planting 30 trees per person will remove each that person's carbon debt for the year.

Trees increase property values by 5 to 20% due to their landscaping value

On average, each American uses more than 600 pounds of paper and almost 200 board feet of timber per year. That is equivalent to a 100 foot tree 18 inches in diameter.

More than 2000 pounds of leaves, twigs, seeds, tree trunks, and branches may rain down each year upon an acre of forest floor. This debris is later returned to the soil by organisms that aid in decomposition.

In one year, a single tree can absorb as much carbon as is produced by a car driving 26,000 miles.

Trees are one of the few organisms that continue growing for many years at pretty much the same rate its whole life.

Each average-sized tree provides an estimated $7 savings in annual environmental benefits, including energy conservation and reduced pollution.

Water originating in U.S. national forests provide drinking water for over 3400 communities, and approximately 60 million individuals.

According to the last forest inventory, there are almost 247 billion trees over 1 inch in diameter in the U.S. that is about 1000 trees for every resident.

The average tree in an urban/city area has a life expectancy of only 8 years.

There are over 23,000 different kinds of trees in the world.

One large tree can lift up to 100 gallons of water out of the ground and discharge it into the air in a day.

Over 5,000 products are made from trees.

Giant seguoia trees can weigh over 2000 tons (4 million pounds)

It can take 10 minutes to walk around the crown of a giant banyon tree in Calcutta.

Live oaks can live to be over 500 years, many giant sequoia trees are 2,500 years old, some bristlecone pines are thought to be over 5000 years old.

Trees trap more of the sun's energy than any other group of organisms on earth, they are in essence big batteries, the largest on earth. Only 0.1% of the sun's energy is trapped by organisms, trees account for 50% of all energy trapped by living organisms.

Trees need food to grow but you can't buy food for them. They make their own food from sunlight, water, carbon dioxide and nutrients from the soil.

Trees do not grow beyond their ability to support themselves.

Tree roots do not grow very deep. Most tree roots are in the top 12 inches of soil.

Tree roots often extend two to three times the width of the tree.

Topping trees is a costly, money-wasting mistreatment of trees.

A newly transplanted small tree will often out grow a larger newly transplanted tree.
