Why grow trees
There are many reasons for growing a tree. Here at The Conservation Volunteers, we believe that trees:
Offer a wonderful habitat for a huge range of animals and plant species
Absorb rainfall & help stop soil erosion
Create cooler micro-climates
Grow food for us and other species
Give us fuel and timber
Improve air quality & reduce noise pollution
Make places more pleasant to live in
Help us have fun – from tree-climbing to apple bobbing!
