advantages there would be way more trees therefor more and cleaner oxygen and disadvantages paper and all products made from trees would not be the same if they wernt made out of trees

1. Gives us shelter from the hot and humid sun
2. Holds the sand firm to the ground so that it will not be blown by the wind everywhere and the world will not become deserts. 3. Help stop global warming by reducing carbon dioxide by breathing it in and gives out oxygen. 4. Being a food producer which provides food for some herbivores.

1. Conducts electricity when there's thunder.

A disadvantage of cutting down a tree is that trees supply our air with oxygen. Cutting down trees does reduce the oxygen level in our atmosphere; only one would not greatly impact anything though. We live on the oxygen that is in your atmosphere but trees are not the only supplier of that. There are several other contributers but I am not fully aware with how much they help out.

What are the advantages and disadvantages for planting trees(plants) in order to reduce CO2 emissions?

what you are referring to is called carbon sequestration.
it provides jobs and a lot of research to learn more about it and our environment.

only so much CO2 can be stored in plants/soil before equilibrium is reached. the bad thing is that anthropogenic global warming theorists are misusing and misinterpreting the data from many of these research projects to try to say that people cause global warming and this is a solution.

in the long run a lot of carbon can be sequestered but the natural role of the environment will dictate the CO2 levels through the natural long term warming and cooling cycles where temperature is followed by CO2 levels.

Causes And Effcts Of Cutting Trees

of the most important parts of the planet we live in. Trees are truly important to the environment, animals, and of course for us humans. They are important for the climate of the Earth, they act as...
