destroying trees we destroy ourselves

The destruction of forests

The world's forests are important for many reasons-from regulating climate to providing a habitat for the majority of species on earth.

Cutting down trees is called deforestation and it can have serious effects. If animals’ homes, which are built in and around the trees, are destroyed, many species will become extinct. For example, many different types of animals in South America were lost before scientists could learn about them.

  • Plant trees

By planting trees, you can reduce emmissions that can usually be absorbed by the forest.

Also, the trees will hold soil like the forests they replace.

  • Petition for stopping cutting down of trees
By bringing attention to the problems with deforestation , you can make a difference in e governments choices on building projects and land management. Let your friends help you!!!

  • Cut down use of paper.

Whenever you can, reuse or recycle paper as opposed to printing new paper. Every piece of paper you throw out is a tree you just wasted! You can even try to use electronics to do papers, if your teachers let you!!!

  • Avoid using timber as much as possible.

When you need to build something, try using alternatives to timber. The less wood we need, the less forest will be knocked out!
