Why are trees so important?

Starting today through April 27th we are celebrating Earth Day! Rustic Slate will plant 2 trees for every product that is purchased!  Trees are vital. As the biggest plants on the planet, they give us oxygen, store carbon, stabilize the soil and give life to the world’s wildlife. They also provide us with the materials for tools and shelter. Not only are trees essential for life, but as the longest living species on earth, they give us a link between the past, present and future. It’s critical that woodlands, rainforests and trees in urban settings, such as parks, are preserved and sustainably managed across the world. Happy Earth Day, Rustic
