Scratching trees provide many benefits for cats. Cats scratch for different reasons. They do so to remove dirt from between their claws, to file these claws and to mark their territory through scent glands on their paw pads. Scraper trees provide more than meeting these basic feeling needs. They provide environmental enrichment, meaning they provide a cat something in their home life which benefits them both physically and mentally. They can be used to scratch, but they can also meet a cat's need to go to high places and rest somewhere they feel safe and contented. Not only that, but they help to prevent your sofa from being turned into confetti. This video from AnimalWised shows you the benefits of scratching trees for cats and helps you to work out where to place yours.
