Trees help to mitigate impacts of climate change

Trees play a critical role in maintaining safe levels of oxygen and carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere and have done for millions of years.

Trees remove and store CO2 from the atmosphere as they grow. They do this by the process of photosynthesis i.e. they use the energy from sunlight to produce sugar, which cellular respiration converts into ATP, the "fuel" used by all living things. 

Trees play an important role in addressing climate change and assisting our agricultural areas to be more sustainable. They do this by helping to reduce atmospheric CO2 levels. They can also assist in preventing salinity and soil erosion, provide shade, shelter, food and habitat to native animals.
