2 main issues with Deforestation

Half of the trees illegally removed from forests are used as fuel. Some other common reasons are: To make more land available for housing and urbanization.

Negative effects on the environment

The most dramatic impact is a loss of habitat for millions of species. Seventy percent of Earth's land animals and plants live in forests, and many cannot survive the deforestation that destroys their homes. Another negative effect is,

Main regions affected by Deforestation

The world's highest rates of deforestation, a significant cause of global warming, are happening in the key emerging economies of Nigeria, Indonesia, and Brazil, according to new research evaluating the state of the world's forests.

How and what Wildlife that is most affected by Deforestation

The Javan Rhinoceros is currently listed as 'critically endangered' by the IUCN Red List and is thus one of the rarest land mammals in the world land use change from forests to farmland has been the most decisive factor in it's demise, and there are now fewer than 60 left in the world. The Giant Panda is currently listed as 'endangered' by the IUCN Red List and numbers of the species have considerably declined in recent decades due to ecological and anthropogenic pressure (Zhan et al, 2006). The Tiger, the largest cat in the world, is currently listed as an endangered species by the IUCN. This is because the Tiger's natural habitat is suffering from deforestation due to commercial logging and oil palm production, and is being put under even further pressure because it is a target for human hunting (Linkie et al, 2003).

Would Deforestation ever affect League City?

I think it will. As I pass by a Target or a Walmart, I see construction people cutting down trees and building another building. So my answer is yes, I think there is Deforesation in League City.

Are people affected by this?

Yes. No trees, no humans. Trees allow us humans to breathe and without the trees, we cannot breathe so that is why I said No trees, No humans.

Who or what causes this?

Humans cause this by cutting down trees.

Solutions or prevents for Deforestation

If we’re going to stop deforestation, we need government to do its part. Specifically, we need world leaders to embrace ambitious domestic and international forest policies based on the latest science.

New Solution

I think a new solution for Deforestation is to talk to the government about stopping this. It is killing habitats for our wildlife and erasing oxygen for humans. It needs to stop.
