Have you ever felt cool when sitting under a tree on a hot summer day? The shade from trees not only keeps us cool, but it helps cool the entire city too. On a global level, trees around the world also help keep the planet from getting too warm. As a matter of fact, trees and the forests that contain them, act like the planet's air conditioning system and help stop global warming.
