Help the environment by planting a tree

Plant a Tree!
A great way to help the environment is to plant a few more trees in your garden. If you don’t have much space there are plenty of attractive small trees, and even planting one will help!
Trees are like the lungs of the planet. They breathe in carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen reducing the planets’ CO2. Additionally, they provide habitat for birds and other wildlife. But that’s not all trees do for us. They also reduce ozone levels in urban areas, reduce urban runoff and erosion by storing water and breaking the force of water as it falls, absorb sound and reduce noise pollution, (important for people living near busy roads!) and provide shade for those warmer summer months.
