This is an article written as a part of project on increasing commercialization leading to indiscriminate cutting of trees. It emphasizes on the benefits of trees, their uses and importance in maintaining a healthy life balance.


Trees are an important part of society and community. Along with furnishing us with the basic essentials for life like food, oxygen, shelter, medicine, tools, they also satisfy the needs created by our modern ways of living. The value of trees has been increasing ever since more and more benefits are being discovered.

Trees provide us shade and shelter, help in moderating the climate, preserving soil, supporting wildlife, reducing pollution and in many other ways. Trees create an aesthetically pleasing atmosphere around us.  They make our landscape look beautiful..indeed priceless.

However, the population explosion and expansion of commercial areas has resulted in massive pruning of trees. People are continuously cutting trees for developmental activities like making houses, commercial buildings, parking lots and we are moving a step further in destroying the planet by loosing the most valuable resource of the environment.

mf0zqtYHave we ever thought what would happen if there were no trees on Earth?

Global warming will increase leading to melting of glaciers and a rise in sea level. This will disturb the entire chain of life on earth.

The water cycle will get disturbed, many species of animals will loose their habitats and we will in turn loose the huge bio-diversity that we are now proud of.

What would we provide to the generations yet unborn with, if there were no parks, playgrounds and backyards? How will they feel connected to Nature and Mother Earth?

Trees are the lungs through which we breathe. Where would oxygen come  for mankind  to breathe?

Are we sure that we can settle with more buildings, more commercial houses, more paved streets and less of trees?


It is time to re-think the action of cutting down trees for development of a nation. It is difficult or rather impossible to sustain life on Earth without trees and it is not possible to find alternatives to trees. It is also our responsibility to pass on to the future generations, the benefits we were provided with, by nature.

It is time to save the trees. Our small efforts can save the environment. All it needs is a start!

If not Earth then where do we think life will exist?

If we do not take any action today, then when will the appropriate time come?

If not us then who else will work towards their preservation?

Its time to act. Hurry because time is running fast!

Save trees, Save the Planet 🙂
