Benefits of Planting Trees on Your Land
Finding the right activity for your bare land can be an uphill task without the right investment knowledge. Being a real estate investor is more than a title, you have to often think of how to grow your investment and add value to your piece of land.
Most people have no immediate plan for their land once they have made a purchase, they often let the land sit idle for some time. The sight of such pieces of land is not only unpleasant but also detrimental to the land itself. An easy way to keep your land active is to plant trees.
Growing trees on your land has immense benefits and value apart from making the plot of land more appealing to the eye. Trees benefit both the land they grow on and the surrounding environment. Here are a few benefits of planting trees on your plot of land:
- Improves the soil on the land- When you plant trees on your piece of land you will notice changes in the soil. The soil will absorb and retain a higher amount of moisture compared to bare land. This increased ability improves the soil composition making it ideal for agriculture.
- Prevents soil erosion – Trees act as a natural barrier that protects the soil from the adverse effects of wind and rain. They hold the soil together by the use of roots creating soil stability.
- Reducing climate change- When you plant trees, you have contributed to a greener world. Trees reduce the harmful carbon dioxide in the atmosphere as they absorb the gas during photosynthesis and release oxygen to the air. It is estimated that just one tree can produce sufficient oxygen for four adults. Imagine the change you will be making for the community and the world!
- Profitable venture- Remember the phrase that money doesn’t grow on trees? Well, it might as well because there are several ways trees can earn you money. You can be one of the many Kenyans who earn from agro-forestry.
