Trees are essential for reducing the amount of carbon dioxide that accumulates in the atmosphere. A key issue is the natural growth cycle of trees which may take years to complete depending on the type of tree.
‘Artificial trees’ can be used to cut down on emissions of carbon dioxide. Artificial trees are so called because of their ability to mimic natural trees in the context of uptake of carbon.
Such trees can and should be used in combination with natural trees. The two can complement each other with artificial trees reducing in carbon dioxide accumulation while natural trees, through photosynthesis, continue to provide fresh oxygen needed by living organisms.
