How do tree’s help the environment?

I know that they help by recycling CO2 and provide oxygen for us to breathe, but what other ways do tree’s contribute to the environment? Are there specific types of tree’s that help more than others?

    Trees help absorb rainwater to prevent floods and keep the soil in place with their roots. This is a very important function when it comes to preventing erosion. Homes built on hills that have been completely denuded of trees can suffer landslides when it rains.

    Trees provide valuable shade that helps reduce the heat island effect many cities experience. Having a tree shade your house can reduce your electric bill from running air conditioning dramatically. Trees also purify water and soil. They also help increase the biodiversity of areas by providing food and shelter for other species.
