Deforestation means to cut down trees at massive rate.
In forests, there are a lot of living things who use trees as their habitat or source of food. When the trees are removed, the living organisms loose their habitat.

If deforestation is being done at very big rate, the area might end up loosing all the wildlife it contained.
