Why We Plant Trees



Fruitful trees improve our air quality help reducing heat trapped in the atmosphere due to high levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other heat-trapping gases that prohibit it from releasing the heat into space.This creates a phenomenon known today as the “greenhouse effect.”



To conserve water and improve water quality. Trees prevent erosion and clean the water. When planted in marginal areas of agricultural land attracts wildlife, sequesters carbon and helps with flood control.



Before Climate Change became the “hot” topic in the environmental debate, the loss of biodiversity was internationally recognized as being the major threat facing the future of life on our planet. This variety of planting trees is important in many ways, such as:Helping to safeguard against pests and disease.Providing sources of new medicines and other plant-derived compounds.Contributing to the strength and stability of ecosystems (since a more diverse, complex ecosystem will be more stable).Enabling ecosystems to adapt to changing conditions such as climate change.



Trees Help Fight Climate Change whether you plant trees around your home and property, in your community, or in our national forests,they help fight climate change. Through the natural process of photosynthesis, trees absorb CO2 and other pollutant particulates, then store the carbon and emit pure oxygen.


Why Tree Planting?

Our idea is inspired by the increased air pollution, climate change, and energy solution.


Many of the drivers of climate change, such as inefficient and polluting forms of energy and transport systems, also contribute to air pollution. Air pollution is now one of the largest global health risks, causing approximately seven million deaths every year.


There is a need to support us with adequate funding to protect the climate at the local level, and also to promote awareness at all levels through immediate health benefits of climate literacy education.


Under a high emissions scenario, annual temperature is expected to rise by about 4.8°C on average, we believe if we plant more trees in our city,daily emissions will decrease rapidly, and the temperature rise will be limited to about 1.2°C.


* Under a high emissions scenario, an average of 241,900 people is outlined to be affected by flooding due to sea level rise every year. If more trees are planted, emissions will decrease rapidly and there will be a major scale up in protection and the population affected by flooding could be limited to about 200 people.


Under a high emissions scenario, heat-related deaths in the elderly (65+years) are outlined to increase to almost 70 deaths per 100,000 by 2080. A rapid urban tree planting will reduce emissions and limit heat-related deaths in the elderly to about 14 deaths per 100,000 if more trees are planted before 2080.


Large urban trees planted across the city of Accra and its environs will filter pollutants and fine particulates. It can provide food, such as fruits, nuts, and leaves. Spending time near them will improve physical and mental health by increasing the energy level and speed of recovery while decreasing blood pressure and stress.


The trees will be on the job 24 hours every day working to improve our environment and quality of life. More trees planted can serve as major capital assets on our streets, sidewalks, sewers, schools, public buildings, and recreational facilities.


You will agree with us that without trees, the city is a sterile landscape of concrete, brick, steel, and asphalt.You can picture any city or town without trees. Would it be a place where you would like to live?


Trees make communities livable for people. They connect beauty and promote an environment beneficial to our mental health.
