Everyone knows that trees are good for
the enviroment, and produce oxygen for the
atmosphere.They also absorb CO2. But, trees shed leaves
and it's a pain to pick up all those leaves. Believe it
or not, but all those leaves that trees drop are
healthy for your other plants or anything growing
underneath the leaves. When the tree sheds the
leaves, they fall on the ground or plants below.
During the winter, these leaves protect the
plants from snow, ice, and the cold.
However, there is a downside.
These leaves also protect
the plants from
the sun and kills
them. That's why
wind is important
in a plant's life... to
blow the leaves
off so it can live.
