The RSPB is the UK’s largest nature conservation charity, inspiring everyone to give nature a home and secure a healthy environment for wildlife.
Trees help to combat global warming by absorbing carbon dioxide, removing and storing carbon while releasing oxygen back into the air. They also reduce wind speeds and cool the air as they lose moisture and reflect heat upwards from their leaves.
Trees are the ultimate carbon capture and storage machines. Like great carbon sinks, woods and forests absorb atmospheric carbon and lock it up for centuries. They do this through photosynthesis.
The entire woodland ecosystem plays a huge role in locking up carbon, including the living wood, roots, leaves, deadwood, surrounding soils and its associated vegetation.
- Prevent flooding
- Reduce city temperature
- Reduce pollution
- Keep soil nutrient-rich
The bottom line is, we need more trees and we need to protect the ones we already have.
That is why in July 2022 we will be donating £5 for every visitor that attends the SOLEX Exhibition, putting it simply PLANT A TREE WITH LOFA & RSPB, so register your interest today and help us to help the planet.
If you would like to donate please go to www.rspb.org.uk.
£5 for each attendee at SOLEX 2022 will be donated to the RSPB, a registered charity in England and Wales, number 207076, and in Scotland, number SC037654.
