Plants, whether they area trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals, grasses or vegetables, all help protect the environment.
- Plants give off oxygen, which humans need to live.
- Plants provide food for humans, livestock and wildlife.
- Plants provide shelter for humans (lumber for buildings), livestock and wildlife.
- Plant roots help reduce soil erosion by absorbing water and holding soil in place.
