World Environment Day: The Role of Trees in Combating Respiratory Diseases

Trees absorb pollutants like nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide, and carbon monoxide, improving air quality

One mature tree produces enough oxygen for 2-10 people annually, essential for respiratory health.

Trees cool the environment, reducing heat stress and related respiratory problems

Being around trees lowers stress, which can improve overall respiratory health

Trees create inviting spaces for exercise, promoting better lung function and respiratory health

Urban green spaces with trees provide clean air, reducing the incidence of respiratory diseases in cities
