Have you ever kissed a tree? If not, do it one day! Plants, in general, are great for renewing our energy, they bring peace and, of course, they remind us that we are part of a beautiful nature. Trees, in particular, carry with them a particular feeling, almost like an authority. They can live for hundreds of years, harbor life forms, produce oxygen, flowers and fruit.
The journal Nature estimated that in 2015 there were approximately three trillion trees in the world! This was obtained in an estimate by satellite images, but the truth is that although the number looks impressive, it is much lower than it was a few years ago and the fault is entirely ours.
Between 2015 and 2020, according to data from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, an average of 10 million hectares of forests have been felled.
We must cut down, trees are the raw material of many things, but we must also replenish, heal and maintain a balance, trees, plants and algae are the only productive beings on the planet and we all depend on them, they are the basis of the food chain and of life on earth.
To inspire you to preserve our planet, we have compiled a list of ten absolutely amazing trees and remember to plant and nurture a tree is to take care of our future and that of the planet.
