All the pupils are part of an eco- class who meet to discuss the environment issues.

Hugh Turrell from the Council briefly discussed the importance of tree planting.

Why do we need to plant trees? What are their benefits?

  • To breath, they take in excess carbon dioxide (CO2) from our atmosphere and convert it in to oxygen for us to breath. Trees are vital in ensuring that our atmosphere remains oxygen-rich. Trees do act as lungs for our planet.
  • To help with pollution, trees act as livening filters to filter all the nasty pollutants that are in the air.
  • Trees provide homes for a lot of the UK’s wildlife.
  • Shelter, shade and flood defences.
  • Trees are vital to our existence, we need them for oxygen and good health and more so now to combat climate change.
