Responsibility

We are lovers of sports and nature, for that reason we want to contribute to achieving a better world. For every purchase you make in Padel Kiwi and leave us an opinion, we will plant a tree.

We will do it thanks to Tree-Nation.com

Can you help us?

Benefits of planting trees for humans

Water

Trees are fundamental pillars for both humans and the environment. They benefit us by purifying water, air, and creating better social conditions. Trees also benefit the environment by providing homes for various forms of life, cooling our climate, and improving our soil.

Purification

Trees purify water and stop rain by filtering it through their roots. This process prevents erosion and reduces the risk of saturation and flooding.

Water supply

Approximately 1/3 of the world's largest cities depend on protected forest areas for a large proportion of their drinking water.

Air

oxygen production

Trees and forests are often referred to as "the lungs of the planet" for a very simple reason: they produce oxygen. It is estimated that 0.4 hectares of trees can provide the oxygen levels required for 12 people for a year.

absorb harmful gases

In addition to absorbing CO2, trees also absorb harmful gases and pollutants such as sulfur dioxide, ozone, ammonia, carbon monoxide, and oxides of nitrogen.

Cool

Trees cool the surrounding air by providing shade and by a process called chilling transpiration. This is where trees give off droplets from their branches that cool the area around them when they evaporate.

Social benefits

Medicinal properties

Many medicines are extracted from the bark of trees, from their leaves and from their flowers of different species. These are normally used in phytotherapy, but many of the components used in the pharmaceutical industry are based on substances originally extracted from trees.

Developing countries

Many of those who live in conditions of extreme poverty in the world live near a forest area. Food, drink, and materials obtained from these forests can add up to 28% of total household earnings in some tropical and subtropical regions.

Mental health

Trees and nature have been shown to improve mental health and cognitive ability in both healthy individuals and those with mental illness.

BENEFITS OF PLANTING TREES FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

Fauna

households

Forests are home to approximately 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity. This includes everything from small invertebrates to large mammals.

insects

Trees are also host to large numbers of insects, with trees such as birch and willow harboring more than 300 species of insects.

prevent extinction

Up to 100 species a day could go extinct due to the loss of rainforests.

Climate

carbon dioxide capture

Natural forests capture CO2, acting as carbon dioxide sinks. Every year forests and trees absorb the equivalent of 2 billion tons of CO2, approximately 1/3 of all the CO2 released in the burning of fossil fuels.

carbon dioxide storage

Deforestation accelerates climate change by releasing CO2 reserves. Approximately 18% of global emissions come from deforestation (5-10 GtCO2e), which exceeds the entire transport sector worldwide.

Land

Protection

Trees make the soil less prone to erosion. The tree canopy also provides protection for the lower soil layers.

nutrient recycling

Tree debris (usually in the form of fallen leaves) allows for the recycling of nutrients between the trees and the soil.

soil structure

Tree roots loosen the topsoil and increase porosity in the subsoil. In addition, the constant source of carbon from evergreen trees benefits microorganisms in the soil, which bind soil particles, improving their structure.
