Day of Trees in South Korea

By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
1     Do you like trees? Are there many of them where you live? Maybe there's a forest near your house, and you like going there to play? Or maybe you go camping with your parents or friends out in the woods. Perhaps your parents or grandparents have a garden. Have you ever helped them plant anything? People in South Korea think it is very important to plant trees. In this story you will learn why.
 
2     South Korea always had lots of trees and forests, but for centuries trees were used as firewood and building material. Throughout its history, South Korea had also many wars during which many forests were destroyed. So, in the twentieth century, there weren't many trees left in South Korea.
 
3     You probably know how important trees are and how dangerous it can be not to have them. Forests provide shelter for many animals, create an environment for other plants to grow, and most importantly, are a source of oxygen for the air we breathe. Forests are especially important in South Korea. Forests there are home to some very rare, endangered animals, like the Amur leopard, Asiatic black bear, and Siberian tiger.
