Our affinity with nature and trees is at the heart of what it is to be living well as a human. Trees are not just super-efficient carbon sinks, they are essential for both our emotional and physical well being. We enjoy their beauty; the changing colours, the smell of blossom and the feel of soft new leaves, all experiences that help us to feel calm, relaxed and happy. Trees are also a natural life-support machine faultlessly designed to protect a thriving biodiversity that includes us. The leaves, bark and roots of most trees naturally soak up many toxic pollutants harmful to human health.
