On September 21 is celebrated the Day of the Tree. This date was chosen because it precedes the beginning of spring in the Southern Hemisphere, which depending on the year can occur between September 22 and 23.
Bringing to the current scenario, this date draws attention for being a cry for help from the forests and trees that are suffering from the fires and fires, which occurred in the Amazon, and now extend to the Pantanal. For this reason, today we will speak a little about the importance of this date.
The importance of the trees
Trees are fundamental for human survival, and through photosynthesis they take advantage of the carbonic gas we eliminate by the lungs and transform it into oxygen.
And this is exactly what this date portrays: the lack of trees would directly affect the lives of living beings, be they people, animals, birds, etc. All of us would be threatened, and this would generate an imbalance of nature.
Besides all this, the trees act in the reduction of the temperature, making the climate cooler and reducing the factors of global warming. The more trees, the more chances we have to avoid a global catastrophe.
The functions of trees can vary in many ways, such as contributing to biodiversity, reducing air pollution, reducing temperature and providing shade.
The motivation of the day of the tree goes beyond the anticipation of the beginning of spring. This date arises as a need to take the population about the importance of trees and plants, so that there is life in the world.
Due to the great amount of use and urban expansion, the trees are constantly felled, resulting in large areas of deforestation.
This deforestation directly affects the life of the entire population, which now faces erosion, silting up of rivers, reduction of rainfall and relative humidity, desertification and loss of biodiversity.
Therefore, the day of the tree should be seen as a date to practice the defense of forests. “If I knew that the world would end tomorrow, today I would plant a tree”. (Martin Luther)
