Wow! A housand reasons actually...because one leads to the other. Trees really have much to offer when we need basic need and raw materials for most of the many things we see.

When I was in high school, there were lots of tree planting activity. What I can say is, planting is not enough. Planting the tree will not help if the tree do not grow. So for me, it's not only planting but nurturing.

There is one location back in the place I studied high school where students flock to plant trees at least thrice each year. The bad news is, every year there is a vacant space to plant on! This means they only waste the effort and planted trees for they did not grow.
