The Benefits of Oxygen for Trees: How Trees Help Us Breathe

Trees are essential for life on Earth, and their ability to produce oxygen is one of the most important benefits they provide. Photosynthesis is the process by which trees use energy from sunlight to convert carbon dioxide and water into glucose. This glucose is then broken down to release energy that boosts the tree's metabolism. During this process, oxygen is released into the atmosphere.

The small openings in the leaves, called stomata, help release oxygen molecules into the atmosphere. All living organisms use oxygen for cellular respiration, and trees absorb carbon dioxide from the air and release oxygen in return. For this reason, tree roots need enough growing space and well-drained soil with enough oxygen and water (but not too much water) to thrive. The depth that oxygen can reach depends on the type of soil and the amount of compaction, and the greatest amount of oxygen will be found close to the soil surface.

This is why tree roots tend to grow just below the surface. Trees that lose their leaves in autumn, such as chestnut, oak, poplar and maple trees, are called deciduous trees.Planting a tree in your garden and motivating others to grow trees is one of the best things you can do as a responsible citizen of the planet. We should also have programs to replace these trees and study ways to improve their fire resistance and carbon absorption capacity.So the next time you take a deep breath, give credit to a tree or hug a tree in gratitude for what it gives us: the same air we breathe.
