The impact of tree planting!
Between 2020 and 2022 we have planted more than 6,751 trees in order to reduce CO2 emissions and contribute to a better world. However, what is the actual impact of tree planting?
Fine dust reduction:
We plant trees because they are an effective way to reduce the concentration of fine dust in the air, which is harmful to human health. Trees can absorb and filter pollutants, making the air cleaner and healthier for people to breathe. This is an important part of fine particle reduction, which aims to decrease small particle concentrations in the air to improve air quality and reduce health risks. The leaves of one beech tree 30 meters high take up 2.83m³ fine dust per month. This means a fine dust reduction of 135.297m³ a year.
Planting trees and growing forests can help to reduce the effects of climate change by sequestering carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. One grown oak tree absorbs 20 kg of CO2 a year. This means a CO2 reduction of 79.680 kg a year.
One beech tree with a height of 30 meters can filter out a significant amount of fine dust through its leaves and provide 9000 litres of oxygen a day. This results in a total of 35.856.000 litres of oxygen produced per year.
And one beech tree with a height of 30 meters can also provide 200 litres of water. This means a total of 290.832.000 litres per year.
By planting trees, we can create a more sustainable and resilient environment for ourselves and future generations while also improving air quality through fine particle reduction.
