10 Lines on Importance of Trees: Life on Earth is being sustained primarily because of the presence of trees. Trees provide fresh air in the form of oxygen and food in the form of edible fruits and many other uses. Trees are therefore precious to humans, animals and birds. Apart from necessities, they also act as home to many birds. In India, planting of trees is celebrated every year as a festival and is called ‘Vanamahotsava’. Man has been exploiting forests and cutting down trees for commercial purposes. The process of cutting down forests, thereby rendering the soil loose and unfit for cultivation is called ‘deforestation’. Due to deforestation, we have been experiencing floods, landslides and other natural calamities.
Below we have provided ten lines on importance of trees, written in easy and simple words for class 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 students.
Set 1 – 10 Lines on Importance of Trees
Few lines on the importance of trees, suitable for classes 1 to 5.
- Trees provide fresh and clean air to breathe.
- Trees also give us a variety of foods, spices, and many of them contain medicinal properties.
- Trees are valuable to humans, animals and birds as they provide them with shelter and homes.
- Trees are also responsible for rainfall and cutting down of trees has caused untimely rains on Earth.
- Tree roots hold the soil tightly, bind them together and prevent soil erosion and help conserve the quality of soil elements.
- Trees prevent harmful rays of the sun from penetrating and also help maintain a steady temperature.
- Many trees are worshipped in our culture and traditions, mainly because of their medicinal value.
- Trees help in water conservation by preserving the underground water sources.
- Trees help in absorbing harmful gases present in the atmosphere, an effect called ‘greenhouse effect’.
- Trees are grown to preserve the greenery on Earth and make our ecosystem a healthy and clean place to live.
Set 2 – 10 Lines on Importance of Trees
Set 2 is helpful for classes 6 to 8 students.
- Trees are significant to all living forms on Earth as they give us oxygen, food, shelter, medicinal essentials and wood for commercial purposes.
- Trees provide us with plenty of fruits in different seasons like mangoes, oranges, apples and bananas.
- The timber obtained from the bark of trees is used for making furniture, for window frames, buildings etc. and the name of such trees are fir, rosewood, spruce, pine and cedar.
- Many trees contain medicinal properties like neem, cinchona, alder, birch, cedar etc.
- Trees help to keep the soil underneath them intact and prevent them from being washed away; thus, soil erosion is checked.
- Man has been cutting down trees primarily due to commercial exploitation, and this has created an imbalance in the temperature on Earth.
- Government has taken several measures to encourage planting more trees and conserving the greenery belt and thereby preventing deforestation.
- Many trees like rubber, coconut, areca nut etc. provide a means of living to millions of cultivators across the globe, thus helping in trade and commerce of nations.
- Herbivores eat from plants and trees, and they are in turn eaten by carnivorous creatures and they are predated by eagles and vultures, thus creating a systematic food chain in our ecosystem.
- Trees help preserve the quality of life by providing a greener future and helping to stabilize the environmental temperature and balancing the pH in the oxygen around us.
Set 3 – 10 Lines on Importance of Trees
- Trees are valuable assets to life on Earth as they provide the essential element for life to sustain – oxygen.
- Trees offer many useful resources to humans like food, medicinal items, wood, and fibres etc. most of which are helpful commercially.
- Trees help to preserve the natural resources, prevent soil erosion and floods, control drying up of underwater sources.
- Trees play a great role in maintaining the water cycle and provide shelter to a variety of wildlife habitats.
- Air quality is improved when we plant more trees along with the preservation of soil and water.
- Trees absorb all the carbon dioxide and produce fresh oxygen to the atmosphere.
- Not just carbon dioxide, trees also help in eliminating harmful pollutants like carbon monoxide, sulphur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide.
- Tree barks are used for a variety of purposes, especially in the production of resins and gums, wood pulp for manufacturing paper and latex to be converted into rubber.
- Trees help maintain shallow levels of CO2 [Carbon Dioxide] in the atmosphere and bring down heat intensities and temperature of greenhouse gases.
- Trees are well known to have the property of deflection, and thus they prevent high-intensity heat and sun rays from reaching the ground directly.
