2. Saving Trees Around You
Every town and city has laws dictating which tree species need to be protected and when and how it’s OK to cut down trees. In some areas, trees that are delicate, rare or extremely beneficial are protected by law. Knowing the laws in your area will help you be a better advocate for the trees there.
3. Participate in Tree plantation
As important as it is to protect mature trees, it’s also essential to think ahead and plant new trees that will eventually get tall enough to contribute to the canopy, clean the air and help keep temperatures cool. Many towns and cities have organizations like Esprit journeys which is working to plant trees in areas that have too few. If your town or city doesn’t have a similar organization, why not start one yourself? Tree by tree, you can make a difference. • The type of tree you plant matters. Talk with an arborist about which species are native to your area and will eventually get big enough to clean the air and water. Small, ornamental trees won’t contribute much. • Buying trees can get expensive. See if there’s a nursery nearby that shares your views on trees and could give your group a discount on baby trees.
4. Reduce paper use
Reducing your use of paper products in order to save trees can seem abstract, since you never see the trees that get turned into items like paper towels and napkins. But it’s important to start seeing the connection between the trees you love and the products you use, since somewhere trees where cut down, processed into pulp, bleached and pressed into the shape of tissues you can use to blow your nose on. If you’re passionate about saving trees, look for ways to use fewer paper products in your daily life • Use cloth towels instead of paper towels. It’s a simple change that can reduce a lot of unnecessary waste. • Use cloth napkins instead of paper napkins. They’re more elegant, anyway. • Use handkerchiefs instead of tissues. It might take some getting used to, but handkerchiefs are actually softer on your skin than tissues, so you might like them better. • Use reusable containers instead of paper lunch bags. • If you must use a paper product, always buy the recycled version. At least you’ll know it’s not made from virgin pulp. Choose the paperless options for bills. This simple switch will make your life less cluttered and reduce the number of dead trees on your conscience. If you still get paper bills sent to your house, go online and make the switch to the paperless option. You can opt to receive notifications that a bill is due via email, rather than having to check the mail.
5. Donate to a nonprofit working to save forests
There are many nonprofits dedicated to saving forests across the world, and they are all in need of donations. Find one you trust and consider making a donation. • For example, Esprit journeys is working to stop deforestation. It has projects around the world aimed at saving forests that are under threat. • The Rain forest Action Network aims to educate people and help everyone find a way to play a part in saving trees.
