Want Permit For New Buildings In This Kerala Municipality, First You’ll Have To Plant Trees

The most important is, trees are necessary for rain. Trees create a cold and humid atmosphere required for rain. Second, when it rains, trees hold the water and does not allow to pass over the soil which avoids floods. Third, they provide food to all of the livings.

If we continue to cut the tree at a larger extent then, it will definitely affect the rainfall and also will create an unstable atmosphere which will lend to destruction on/of earth. When we cut down trees, we are taking a home away from animals. Trees cause shade and without that shade, the ground dries up faster and there are not as many nutrients.

And, growing more and more trees and cutting on pollution is the only way out to save our ecosystem. And, this has been ingrained in us since childhood.
