Write an essay (150 - 300 words) about this topic:
Some people think that planting trees in open spaces in cities and towns is more important than building houses. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Many people have views on how to absolutely utilize vacant spaces in cities and towns. While some believe that planting trees in blank spaces in cities and towns is more necessary than building houses, I partly agree with this method.
On the one hand, I agree that planting trees in open spaces in cities and towns is essential to help citizens get a fresher atmosphere in cities and towns. Firstly, the atmosphere in big cities and towns is getting worse than before due to the appearance of industrial parks and increasing of vehicles. Therefore, planting trees has contributed a pure green space to big cities and towns, helping people get a better life. Secondly, the forest area of the world has been narrowed nowadays, so lack of wood resource to serve business activities as well as constructing activities is an unavoidably serious problem. Thus, cultivating trees becomes one of the most useful measures to help people to solve partially emptied wood resources today.
On the other hand, I do not believe that the benefits of building houses in cities or towns is outweighed by planting trees. First and foremost, the population of big cities or towns is increasing these days because of the immigration of people from countryside or mountainous areas. Therefore, building houses or apartments to meet accommodation for everyone is really indispensible. Besides, some economic centers need to be constructed to widen infrastructure as well as provide jobs for citizens in here. Secondly, planting trees in big cities or towns, especially big trees along streets, will cause some grave traffic accidents for citizens in rainy season when these trees are fallen down by storm, strong winds or are struck by lightning.
In summary, I can clearly come to conclusion that although growing trees in cities or towns helps to avoid wasting blank spaces but this solution has its negative impacts.
