Even this challenging situation would ease
So in between, the trees plays an important role throughout as this helps in maintaining the temperature to the nearby surroundings. So there is nothing wrong mentioning the trees as this is also the basis wherein the temperature can vary. With this I agree with the K Mohan, that we should also be carried on with the responsibility of nurturing few trees during our life time as in somehow we are also damaging the natural resources to our surroundings.
The air in the atmosphere contain oxygen and other gases. The trees need carbon for the existence and hence the same is taken from the atmosphere by the trees, leaving pure oxygen, which the humans need. This cleaning job is done by trees. That is why tree conservation idea is popularised by nature lovers. The Governments are also introducing different schemes to conserve trees and forests.
Of course there other environmental gains we get from trees, mainly the preservation of underground water.

It is like staying an air conditioned cottage on the seaside, closing all doors and windows.
Practically we do that.
A proverb which I studied in lower primary class meant 'keeping butter in hand and searching for Ghee'.
Trees around our homes have many surprise effects. We can get up hearing birds chirp. We get shade and feel less warmth during summer.Children can play around the trees. They come t use in many many ways. If possible let us not cut trees, but plant more of them.
The demand for wood and land space is so great that large tracts of vegetation are systematically destroyed every day. We often hear about the illegal destruction of sandalwood and red sanders from South India. We tend to forget the number of old gaint trees lost in the name of road widening, flyovers and hypermarkets.
Trees big in shade, imporve the air quailty, greenery around the busy streets or neighborhoods also encourage bird life. This summer we have the gulmohar trees in full bloom, seeing tree lined avenues with the riot of colours is very pleasant.
Like the authors idea of contributing to afforestation by planting trees. Since the last year or so, there has been an increasing trend about gifting small saplings to children at birthday parties and summer camps. Hopefully we can also plant and nurture trees wherever possible.
So we all should have the habit of growing trees. These days terrace plantation is also coming out. We can grow plants on our terrace by having pots or spreading the clay on the terrace and introducing the drip irrigation methods where you will have less water consumption and more trees. We should compensate for the damages caused by us to nature. There is no second thought about it.
