Importance of Trees.

























Article shared by Carlos Eduardo Feijoo, Founder, CEO and Editor of International Lux Magazine, from the web site of one of our Co-media partners.

A tree, in Botany, is a perennial plant with an elongated stem, or trunk, supporting branches and leaves in most species. We all know that trees provide oxygen, fruits, shade and timber but, unlike other living organisms, they are not capable of locomotion or movement.

However, there is more to these trees than we think we now. Trees are extremely important for us and our habitat.

Following are the some of the most important benefits of trees:

1. Trees absorb carbon-dioxide and release oxygen into the atmosphere which is essential for breathing for all animal life on Earth. In one year an acre of mature trees can provide enough oxygen for 18 people.

2. Trees combat climate change. In one year, an acre of mature trees absorbs the same amount of CO2 produced when one drives a car for 26,000 miles.

3. Trees clean the air we breathe by absorbing odours and pollutant gases such as Nitrogen Oxides, Ammonia, Sulphur Dioxide and Carbon Dioxide. They also filter particulates out of the air by trapping them on their leaves and bark.

4. Trees cool the streets and cities by providing shade, breaking up urban “heat islands” and releasing water.

5.Trees conserve energy. Only three trees placed strategically around a single-family home can cut summer air-conditioning needs by up to 50 percent. By reducing the energy demand for cooling our houses, we reduce carbon dioxide and other pollution emissions from power plants.

6.Trees save water by providing shade which slows water evaporation from thirsty lawns. Most newly planted trees need only fifteen gallons of water a week. As trees transpire, they increase atmospheric moisture.

7. Trees help prevent water pollution. They reduce runoff by breaking rainfall, thus allowing the water to flow down the trunk and into the earth below the trees. This prevents storm-water from carrying pollutants to the ocean. When mulched, trees act like a sponge that filters this water naturally and uses it to recharge groundwater supplies.

8.Trees help prevent soil erosion on hillsides or stream slopes by slowing run-off and holding soil in place.

9. Trees shield humans and all other forms of animal life from ultra-violet rays by reducing UV-B exposure by about 50 percent.

10. Trees provide food. An apple tree can yield up to 15-20 bushels of fruit per year and can be planted on the tiniest urban lot. Aside from fruit for humans, trees provide food for birds and wildlife.

11. Trees have a healing effect. Studies have shown that patients with views of trees outside their windows heal faster and with less complications. Children with ADHD show fewer symptoms when they have access to nature. Exposure to trees and nature aids concentration by reducing mental fatigue.

12. Trees mark the seasons. The change in colour and density of leaves serves as a natural marker for the seasons and associated change in weather.

13. Trees create economic opportunities. Fruit harvested from community orchards can be sold, thus providing income. Small business opportunities in green waste management and landscaping arise when cities value mulching and its water-saving qualities. Vocational training for youth interested in green jobs is also a great way to earn revenue.

14. Trees are teachers as well as play mates. Whether as houses for children or creative and spiritual inspiration for adults, trees have provided the space for human retreat throughout the ages.
Trees foster unity and bring diverse groups of people together. Trees as landmarks can give a neighborhood a new identity and encourage civic pride. Plantation and afforestation drives provide an opportunity for community involvement and empowerment that improves the quality of life in neighborhoods.

15. Trees provide a canopy and habitat for wildlife. Sycamore and oak are among the many urban species that provide excellent urban homes for birds, bees, possums and squirrels.
Trees beautify the environment and surroundings. They help in cloaking concrete walls, parking lots and unsightly views. They also aid in reducing noise pollution by muffling sound from nearby streets and freeways.

16. Trees provide wood for fuel, furniture and craft-wood.

17. Trees increase property value. The beauty of a well-planted property and its surrounding streets and neighborhood can raise estimated values by as much as 15 percent.

18. Trees are also used as camouflage by the armed forces.

3 reasons to go fishing on your next day trip.


















(BPT) - When the weather warms up, it’s the perfect time to spend a day casting on the water. Whether you’re an experienced fisherman, a novice or a family looking for a fun, all-ages activity, fishing is an easy and enjoyable choice.

Here are three reasons for you and your family to go fishing for your next day trip:

1. It’s a fun way to spend time together.

Fishing is a fun activity that gets kids outdoors and engaged, and it’s easy for anyone to participate, regardless of their age. Fishing allows friends and families to enjoy a relaxing day together, and helps keep their focus on each other, nature and the activity at hand. For kids interested in fishing on a regular basis, organized youth fishing programs are becoming increasingly popular nationwide. These programs and high school fishing teams are growing rapidly, getting support from well-known fishing companies including lure manufacturer Rapala, which sponsors the Student Angler Tournament Trail.

“We are witnessing an exciting explosion in youth enjoyment of fishing,” says Rapala marketing director Matt Jensen. “High school and college fishing teams are growing faster than we’ve ever seen and it’s encouraging kids to get into the sport at a younger age.”

These programs are a great way to teach kids fishing basics, allowing them to pursue a lifelong sport. Summer is an ideal time to sign kids up for fishing camps and schedule fishing trips for the whole family.

2. It’s accessible.

Many people live near lakes or other bodies of water, allowing easy access to the sport. For others, water may be just a short drive away, making for a perfect one-day escape or weekend getaway.
Also, fishing isn’t complicated to learn and doesn’t require a ton of expensive equipment. Whether you own or rent a boat, or fish from a dock or shoreline, learning the basics with an affordable rod and reel is something anyone can do. Also, there are plenty of lure options that make fishing a quick and fun pursuit for any skill level. Here are a few easy-to-use choices:
  • The Original Floating Rapala is the world’s No. 1 “go-to” lure. Found in more tackle boxes than any other bait, it’s versatile and effective. Designed with a natural minnow profile, the bait offers anglers the ability to reach any depth, making it perfect for catching a host of game fish, no matter where they lurk. Its patented wounded minnow swimming action continues to be irresistible to fish decades after its debut.
  • The Storm 360GT Searchbait is the ultimate confidence lure. Designed to be fished anywhere by anglers of all skill levels, its true-to-life rattling jig head and soft-plastic minnow profile creates a natural presentation that fools fish time and time again.
  • The Rapala DT (Dives-To) Series is a favorite choice for professional bass anglers. This crankbait comes in a variety of sizes, allowing the user to target specific depths and stay in the “strike zone” longer than any other crankbait on the market. Swimming with an attention-grabbing side-to-side motion, the Rapala DT-Series is a must-have lure for catching smallmouth and largemouth bass.
3. It’s good for you.

Spending time outdoors offers significant health benefits. One huge advantage of fishing together is that it allows families to get away from screens. Everyone can set their phones and gadgets aside to enjoy time in nature and relish each other’s company without distractions.
If a child is spending too much time with electronics, breaking up their routine with an outdoor activity like fishing can expose them to the benefits of in-person interaction, engaging with the real world and experiencing the beauty of nature.

Here are additional health benefits that come with fishing outdoors:

Vitamin D. Just 10-15 minutes of midday sun provides a healthy dose of vitamin D, which helps bodies absorb calcium. This boosts bone growth and health, and fights disease. Vitamin D also elevates mood, helping with depression.

Relaxation. Being outdoors, breathing fresh air and spending time on a body of water relieves stress and lowers blood pressure. For people constantly on the go, it’s a great way to take a much-needed break.

Exercise. Walking and boating helps burn calories and increases heart rate. And even though the participants may not notice, fishing helps stretch and flex some of the body’s underused muscles.
With its widespread accessibility, health benefits and ease of participation, fishing is a great way to get outside and enjoy the beautiful summer weather ahead. You just might catch some fish — and have a great time doing it.
