Good morning to everyone in this room. I would like to thank the principal, the teachers, and my dear friends for allowing me to speak to you today about saving trees to save lives. The earth’s surface is covered with green, leafy vegetation on 32% of it. We are reliant on trees in so many ways, not the least of which is the air we breathe.
The biodiversity of the earth is preserved through it. But, we do not respect this natural resource and, in the name of civilization, cut down trees and engage in deforestation to meet our own demands without considering the consequences.
We are all aware of how important trees are to both our existence and the survival of every other species on the planet. They are the most priceless source of life that exists today. It is a need for all living things, either directly or indirectly.
The tree provides us with food and shelter, keeps the environment clean, and aids in the battle against climate change. In addition, it protects us from soil erosion, produces oxygen, food, and medicines, and filters harmful compounds and smells. More forests must be planted, and habitat loss and deforestation must stop if we are to conserve the trees.
We should all do our share to protect trees and raise awareness about the need of planting more trees since doing so will benefit both present and future generations. The future won’t exist at all without trees, therefore it’s critical to act now before it’s too late. Thank you.
