How trees reduce summer heat?

Trees perform major climate functions that can abate (summer) heat.

Here’s a look at how beneficial trees are in our lives:

  1. Trees absorb sunlight – The light from the sun which heats the earth’s surface is absorbed by the trees’ dark green leaves.
  2. Trees cool the air – Absorption of carbon from the atmosphere through the process of photosynthesis creates a cooling effect, while also releasing oxygen into the air.
  3. Trees undergo evapotranspiration that leads to cooling – Trees get water from the soil that evaporates into the atmosphere and creates low clouds reflecting the sun’s rays.
