Benefits of trees :

                              Trees give us wood . This wood is used as fuel . It is also used for building houses and boats . Wood is the raw material for paper and rayon.
       Trees and plants make starch by photosyn- thesis. This starch is the food of all grass eating animals. It is also the main food for human be- ing; our demand for meat is also indirectly ful- filled by plants.
       Trees give out water vapour. This cools the air. It is helpful in causing rains. Also, they bind the soil fast and stop the erosion of soil.
       We get many herbs and medicines from plants. Uses of Tulsi, Neem, Amla etc. are well known. They also purify the air by taking carbon- dioxide and releasing oxygen to the atmosphere.
        Forests also provide food and shelter to vari- ous birds and animals which make our earth such a beautiful place.
