Uses Of Trees

Trees are very important to all human beings.Trees benefit us in different ways.A big percentage of kenyan land is not forested.this is a clear indication that trees are being cut both, legally and illegally. Trees can be used to build houses and furniture.this is important because we use this productin differents way for example in schools,pupils use wooden desks and chairs which are cheaper so that they can be comfortable when in home, we also use timber to produce wooden beds, tables, chairs and well units.In hospitals wooden furniture is wooden as well. Trees are also habitats for wild animals in the world. this is a benefit to the tourism sector.Many tourists from different parts of the world visits various countries in order to have better view of wildlife of different species.but the government of kenya has allowed tourist because they bring foreign exchange.
