Well, they have more impact than you probably imagine! Trees help keep our air clean and our water clean. On top of those two VERY important things, trees also help take away carbon from the atmosphere, and they provide a HUGE social impact on our society.
"Over the past decade, America has done an amazing job replanting its disappearing forests. Despite 90% of the United States’ original forests having been
destroyed, the country has actually seen an increase in its total forest cover. While deforestation continues to exist throughout the nation, they have been very good at replanting those trees. American forests are home to over 33,000 plant and animal species, and we rely on them for over 2.5 million jobs, amounting to $102 billion of our GDP."
