Why trees are important
Help us Plant a Billion Tree
A seed ball (or seed bomb) is a seed that is wrapped in a mixture of clay and cattle dung or compost. The cattle dung or compost helps protect the seed from predators such as birds, rodents and insects and extremes of temperature till the rains arrive. Once soaked, the seed ball will help retain and prolong a moist environment around the seed to promote germination. Essentially, the seed is ‘pre-planted’ and can be sown by depositing the seed ball anywhere suitable for the species, keeping the seed safely until the proper germination opportunity arises. Seed balls are an easy way to grow trees with a longer germination time span. They are inexpensive and can be easily dispersed over large areas which are often hard to reach. Direct seeding reduces shock of transplanting saplings and helps the young trees grow stronger roots and hence stronger trees.
Trees help to combat global warming by absorbing carbon dioxide, removing and storing carbon while releasing oxygen back into the air.
They also reduce wind speeds and cool the air as they lose moisture and reflect heat upwards from their leaves. It’s estimated that trees can reduce the temperature in a city by up to 7°C.
Other environmental benefits include the fact they help to prevent flooding and soil erosion, by absorbing thousands of litres of stormwater.
