Although Willersey is not large, there is an amazing variety in its landscapes, trees and buildings.
Trees provide homes and food for birds and other animals. Trees absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen. One large tree can supply a day's supply of oxygen for four people.
Trees reduce rain water runoff. Trees reduce the effect of climate change and provide us with wood, food, cooler environments and give us medicines.
Trees provide us with many products we use in our everyday life such as rubber, wine corks, wax, dyes, chocolate and fruit. Ground up wood is used to make paper.
Sap is used to make maple syrup, chewing gum, crayons, paint, and soap. Dyes and medicines are made from the bark, while leaves and roots provide oils for cosmetics and medicines.
Some biodegradable plastics may be made from wood feedstocks rather than oil in the future.
