Richard St. Barbe Baker said it this way,  “If a person loses one third of his or her skin, the person will die; if a tree loses a third of its bark, the tree will die, and if the world loses a third of its trees, the world will die. We live less that five minutes without air and the trees give us air we breathe.  We live less than five days without water, and trees are absolutely essential in the water cycle.
