Lets Plant a Tree
Start date: Dec 1, 2010,

Trees - they are all around us. They are part of our community, of our yard, of our life.Trees alter the environment in which we live by moderating climate, improving air quality,conserving water, and harboring wildlife. Climate control is obtained by moderating theeffects of sun, wind, and rain. Radiant energy from the sun is absorbed or deflected byleaves on deciduous trees in the summer and is only filtered by branches of deciduoustrees in winter. We are cooler when we stand in the shade of trees and are not exposed todirect sunlight. Trees have a big effect in our lives. Do we know their role? What will be lifewithout trees? Why the old people usually say - plant a tree - plant your future? These arethe questions that we will raise during the Youth exchange - "Lets Plant a Tree".
