Trees help clean the air by absorbing carbon dioxide from the air and replacing it with oxygen. It also helps to save our ozone layer which is depleted when gases like carbon dioxide goes up into the outer most fare. By producing oxygen, trees help to balance gases in our environment in order to make it suitable for us to live in.
