Industrial activities, such as logging, mining, oil and gas development continue to eat away at the forest. They take effect by contaminating areas with toxic chemicals, letting humans into remote areas, changing water and nutrient cycles, and damaging wildlife habitats. Boreal forests are also exposed to forest fires and global warming, both of which are also taking effect.
