A plant will take in the energy of the sun and carbon dioxide for photosynthesis and growth (including water) which makes starch and oxygen. Starch is food and stored in the roots of the plant and oxygen is a byproduct and is released in the air.  That is why people worry so much about plants and trees - being the ones who take in the most sun and carbon and in a ideal world would help to balance out the air elements composition.
