Deforestation Kicked The Trees Out!

What is Deforestation?

Deforestation is the clearing of Earth's forests on a massive scale, often resulting in damage to the quality of the land. The first step to the malls, restaurants, and stores is by taking away the trees from the area and building around the forest so that other people can invade the forests privacy.

Deforestations Impact on Land

The destruction of a forest with deforestation is caused by harvesting, housing, or ranching. Harvesting the timber from trees can me used to create commercial items such as paper, furniture and homes. With the trees taken away from their natural home it can become another persons home to use electricity, set fires, ruining the air with things like fabreez, maybe even a building to use coal for power or a power plant. Animals provide food but when they're given the space of the forest no trees had to be cut down but humans found it easier to let them loose in a field where it's easy to be seen.

We can stop Deforestation

Many people believe that to counter deforestation, people simply need to plant more trees. A massive replanting effort would help to counter the problems deforestation caused, it would only help but solve all of it's problems. there are even other ways to help out with the environment than to replant a tree, such examples like:

  • Restoring the ecosystem provided by forests including carbon storage, water cycling and wildlife habitat.
  • reducing the buildup of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
  • rebuilding wildlife habitats.

Possible Challenges

People can have a hard time trying to help out forests when products needed by the forest are in demand for a lot of people ordering. it can be hard to try and regrow trees and let them settle when people want to be supplied with more paper. Or when there's a demand for certain oils, coal for an energy source, and or timber for houses. With these challenges deforestation may not be stopped but it can be countered, while trees are still being cut down many people can plant a tree per one that they cut down, that would be a big help, and or many people could do things over technology instead of paper, so many things are needed by forests but there are other ways to meet demands and help out the forests little by little.

Video Summary

Industrial uses, cutting down trees to build factories or buildings, and live stock are reasons that deforestation is a thing. Industrial businesses provide dangerous chemicals that can affect the air and the wildlife that was living in the areas the trees were cut down from. The cutting of trees isn't necessary to do just for making factories and buildings, for every tree they cut down they should grow more. When people make room for live stock they should just put up fences and leave the trees in so that no damage may be done to either area.
