We are all familiar with trees they are everywhere! What you may not know, however, is that there are basically two classes of trees: coniferous and deciduous trees. As the name implies, coniferous trees are shaped like cones. Trees that fall in this category are very common, and they include pine trees, redwood trees and many other types. Deciduous trees, on the other hand, are trees which bear leaves that fall off seasonally. Deciduous trees include trees like maple trees, oak trees and a host of others. Trees can be found everywhere in the United States, and they provide home for birds and animals while acting as shades and beautifying a place. Although all trees have the basic parts such as trunk, branches and leaves, there are certain factors that determine the kind of tree that grows in any region in the world. These factors include temperature, climate and amount of sunlight. The major biomes of the United States are coniferous, deciduous, tropical rainforest, deserts, grasslands and tundra. This just means a variety of trees can be found in the United States.
The United States contains about eight percent of the world's forests. According to reports, there are more trees in the United States now than there were a hundred years ago. Responsible harvesting of trees, conservation of forest reserves and the replanting of trees, among other factors, are responsible for this increase. This is good news for the earth, because trees help mitigate the effects of global warming by reducing the amount of carbon dioxide in the air. The more trees we have, the less carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. That just gives us more oxygen to breathe. Availability of trees also means that we get to have wood available for making furniture and paper products all of which are recyclable. A lot of harm was done to the forest reserves in past years, until we realized that trees were important in the balance of nature. Although we cannot go back on our actions, we can support the reservation efforts being carried out to encourage the restoration of American forests. The United States Government participation in achieving a sustainable forest reserve is one of the main reasons why forests are recovering.
