About Trees Are The Key Awareness Week
Trees Are The Key Awareness Week is an initiative from UK Registered Charity, The Word Forest Organisation, run each March to encompass The International Day of the Forests.
Begun in 2021, the ‘Trees Are The Key’ Awareness Week raises awareness of the many health benefits of trees, as well how planting more trees – especially in the tropics where they grow quickly – can help to tackle climate change.
Trees are the key to solving so many of the world’s problems, not just climate chaos.
- They are crucial ingredients for a healthy environment and every living, breathing inhabitant of our planet.
- Trees are the ultimate gift (from Mother Nature) that keeps on giving.
- They clean the air that we all breathe, manufacture precious oxygen, allow biodiversity to flourish, and give habitat for wildlife.
- They also help to maintain high levels of organic matter for the soil, and via their roots systems help to improve the soil’s ability to absorb and retain water.
As if that’s not enough, the crops from different types of trees worldwide provide a range of commodities: fruits, nuts and other foodstuffs, medicine, building materials, and more.Find out more
