Trees offer magnanimous advantages. They provide us with oxygen, a necessity of life, and take in carbon dioxide. Unfortunately, the phenomenon of cutting down trees in order to build houses, collect firewood, and other purpose, leaves a bad imprint on the beauty of nature. Thousands of trees are cut down on a daily basis which disturbs the entire ecosystem. As a result of this carelessness, the temperature of the globe is rising, destroying the environment and increasing pollution in the process. The much needed tree-cover is decreasing at an alarming rate which assists the spreading of fatal diseases like asthma, cancer, typhoid, malaria, and so on. 

Greenhouse effects and global warming can easily be minimised through proper plantation. Hence, as citizens of the world, it is the responsibility of everyone to launch environmental awareness campaigns and plant more trees in order to protect the planet.
