The Wonderful Trees in La Mesa Ecopark
La Mesa Ecopark in Quezon City, Philippines is a paradise of trees. I've been there twice already and I've seen the beauty of such place. It's really nice to have a picnic in a place surrounded by magnificent trees.
Trees do stop flooding by holding topsoil in place and removing water from the ground. Trees protect vital water supplies and shelter crops from strong winds, heavy rains and furious storms.`
Trees are important to us because they improve air quality, moderate the climate, conserve water and harbor wildlife. Every tree in this world works 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to improve our neighborhood and community. They supply us with fences, farm tools, wood for housing construction, traditional crafts. pulp for paper, cardboard, and numerous paper goods.
