Best Answer

The trees and most plant life needs the sun to make food. The sunlight serves as the process called photosynthesis which the plant utilizes in combining water and mineral to create plant starch which in turn serves as the plants food.

Why is the Sun central to life on Earth?

It is because without it we would have no light so no plants could grow and we wouldn't be able to get the food that grows on trees or in the ground because there is no sun to keep them growing and they would just die. We need trees and plants to survive because they take in all of the carbon dioxide that we don't need and give us the oxygen that we do need.
