Trees are one of the most important components of the ecosystems all around the world. Without them, Mother Nature would fall and no longer be able to support human or animal life in general. 

Trees contribute to the temperature and can affect it up to 10 degrees Fahrenheit, according to CNN. Also stated on CNN, we have lossed over 36 million trees just annually from a 5 year period from urban and rural communities.

Our trees are important to everyone in the world, whether we know it or not. Trees can affect hurricanes, tornadoes, fires, insects and even disease for humans and animals. The impact of a life without trees would be absolutely devastating for the entire world. 

With the entire world’s supply of oxygen, and clean air in general being in jeopardy due to the loss of trees because of things like deforestation and pollution, we can’t give an accurate timeline as to when this situation could get so much more serious. 

With the knowledge of tree’s absence having the ability to cause natural disasters, it’s possible that the recent violent climate may have been an effect of that. 

Off of the east coast a storm being referred to as a “bomb cyclone” has appreared, according to CNN. It’s expected to leave extremely heavy snow and coastal flooding in very high degrees. Snow measurements are leading scientists to believe that they would receive 12-24 inches of snow. 

With the loss of trees, America and most of all other countries around the world will feel the effect of it. This is not a problem that would be good for world leaders and scientists to ignore.
