Do trees make oxygen?

What do you think we need to do to save the trees?
How do trees cut down make us loose oxygen?
Trees take in carbon dioxide, which humans and animals breathe out, and use it to make sugar or glucose molecules to survive. In return the trees produce oxygen as a by-product to photosynthesis and release it into the atmosphere. By cutting down trees, the oxygen that is produced from these trees is lost, hence causing us to loose oxygen.
Asked in Trees
How many trees make oxygen?
All trees with green leaves (ie. that have chlorophyl in them) give out oxygen in the day during photosynthesis. Note: They don't actually make the oxygen. It already exists. Two atoms of oxygen are bonded with a carbon atom to make the carbon dioxide molecule which animals breathe out. Trees and plants breathe it in, keep the carbon for themselves, and breathe out the oxygen.
