Trees are Important Heroes and Killers

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.
