1 We Speak for the Trees

2 Deforestation With each passing day, Bangalore is becoming more and more grey The charming greenery of the city now faces a bleak future. The city is losing its green cover with at least a dozen trees perishing with each passing day after being chopped As part of rapid urbanisation, unhindered construction activities on encroached lung spaces mocks the significance of the existing law protecting the green cover of the city, sounding death knell for these life saviours. When considering a global climatic change, the destruction of plants through cutting and burning could raise atmospheric carbon dioxide levels above expectations. Because of direct competition, the aspiration levels in urban areas are very high, and this has an indirect effect on the environment, causing more industrialisation, and greater pollution. There is an urgent need for an action plan to save the vanishing greens or else the city habitants will have to carry oxygen cylinders

3 Benefits of planting trees
They help stop global warming by reducing greenhouse gases They reduce soil erosion and water pollution They provide habitat for wildlife They improve human health by producing oxygen and improving air quality Facts about the benefits provided by planting one tree Absorbs over a ton of harmful greenhouse gases over its lifetime Produces enough oxygen for four people every day Provides the equivalent cooling effect of ten room-size air conditioners operating 20 hours a day
