Issues and its Effects
Deforestation will take away the benifits forests give nearly 1.6 billion people. These benifits include food, water, etc. Deforestation will also take away the oxygen it produces and the homes it provides for animals.
This problem severly affects wildlife in several ways enspecially tigers. One hundred years ago, there were a hundred thousand tigers. Now there are only three thousand two hundred. Wildlife uses the forest for shelter, they can also find food and other resources in the forest. Most organisms wouldnt be able to adapt without the forest.
Deforestation doesn't affect our area (League City) yet, however when other forests are destroyed, our foests and trees could be "next." Humans are affected by this because the animals are starting to move towards civilazation. This is all because companys and factorys producing paper or timber need the forests for their products.
There are few solutions out there to stop this problem but they can be effective. One introduces supplies that allow poeple to get timber and other things in that nature in a way that hardly impacts the forest. Another solution uses U.S. laws to protect certain forests. A solution that we have come up with is to simply survive off of technology and other things we have today. We have enough land. We could use as few resources as possible from the forests
