Promblems and solutions


There are many problems that the rainforest encounters. One of the biggest problems is that people cut down millions of trees each year. At the rate that lumberjacks are moving, in each hour of the day, 1,000 to 3,000 acres of the rainforest are destroyed. 40,000,000 to 50,000,000 acres are being destroyed each year.The lumberjacks cut down these trees for firewood, houses, and for other money making industries.
