As many as 60,000  trees are cut down each year that’s a waste of natural resources .Trees also can help us breathe.  Trees are also helpful if there are flash floods.

If we the trees get cut down the animals won’t be able to breath neither will we because the tree provide oxygen for us .If we can’t breathe or the animals, are also helpful for the environment like eating crops and don’t use natural resources.

Trees are also used for natural resources and if we cut down to many we won’t have any natural resources left. We wont have paper pencils and even fruits come from some of the trees in the forest.

Did you know 60,000 trees are cut down each year and if all those trees are cut down the animals won’t  have a habitat  and will have to survive without a home in the wild .

We should stop cutting down trees because we could use other trees like bamboo, hemp, kenaf,and sugarcane are also good to use for natural recourses

Did you ever notice we use a lot of things from trees? Well, we do. We use wood to make pencils and houses. But those lumberjacks are forgetting why trees are important. For one thing animals like birds live in trees and you cut down their homes, lumberjacks! Secondly, if we cut down trees more carbon dioxide goes in the air. This can cause droughts{which is a long period with no rain you’ll see so in another post}. Trees help us breathe. They take carbon dioxide though their leaves then give out oxygen. Trees are important so let’s save them!

Intresting Trees

Rose Canyon has many plants but  I am going to tell you about three interesting trees in Rose Canyon. We have the  Sycamore Tree, Weeping Willow Tree (Willow Tree), and Coast Live Oak Tree in Rose Canyon. Now let’s learn about the height and structure of the three different trees.

California Sycamore Tree

California Sycamore Tree

Sycamore Trees has a lot of description and great facts. The fruit on the Sycamore Tree are called Achenes. You can tell that you are looking at a Sycamore Trees by their leaves. The leaves have fuzz on the bottom of the leaves. The leave color is olive green. Did you know that the Sycamore Tree is part of the plain tree family? Well it is. The tree can reach up to the height of 175 feet and 53 m. The tree can be found in the U.S from southern Main

Willow Trees leaves look very droopy when you look at it.  When the Willow Tree is compared to other trees their lifespan is shorter. Their height and width can be 35-50 feet.The fruit of the tree looks like a small brown capsule. It is half-inch long. Beautiful baskets are woven using the willow stems. Willow Trees have a short trunk. Willows usually grow near water. The Kumeyaay girls or women used the bark for skirts! Isn’t that fascinating.

Coast Live Oak Tree is a beautiful evergreen oak that grows nicely along S.E. coast of the U.S. it can also be seen in dry parts of Texas. It can grow to be 50 feet(15 meters) tall. It is the state tree of Georgia. Is a favorite tree for lawns and streets because it can resists damage from storms, bugs, and illness.
