Trees for Tomorrow

When we use trees to make things, we can grow new trees.

Merry Christmas
We won't run out of Christmas trees. Tree farmers plant new ones.

Paper Makers
It takes lots of trees to make paper. Paper makers plant millions of new trees every year.

Some trees grow very slowly. Their wood is very hard. The things we make from them last a long time.
