Trees in Poland

83

Trees and forests are a very important part of our planet. Trees absorb carbon dioxide and release
essential oxygen. They improve air quality, filter pollutants and remove chemicals. Trees are also a
habitat for wild animals and plants.
In Poland, we have many initiatives that encourage tree planting and plant new trees.
One of such programs is “Planting Trees” – a nationwide initiative that encourages people to plant
trees in their neighborhoods. Local governments, environmental organizations and even schools
organize tree planting campaigns in their regions.
Another initiative is the “Our Land” foundation – it organizes tree planting campaigns in all regions of
the country.
Every tree contributes to improving the situation of our planet!
