in the ecosystem of
rainforests, for instance,
remains inside the plants.
When these trees are cut
down it results in the climate
getting drier in that area.
Loss of Biodiversity: The unique biodiversity of various geographical areas is being lost on a scale that is quite unprecedented. Even though tropical rainforests make up just 6 percent of the surface area of the Earth, about 85 percent of the entire species of the world exist here. Due to massive deforestation, about 50 to 100 species of animals are being lost each day. This puts the extinction of animals and plants on a massive scale.
Flooding and Drought:
One of the vital functions of
forests is to absorb and
store great amounts of
water quickly when there
are heavy rains. When
forests are cut down, this regulation
of the flow of water is disrupted, which leads to
alternating periods of
flood and then
drought in the
Climate Change: It is well known that global warming is being
caused largely due to emissions of greenhouse gases into the
atmosphere. However, what is not quite known is that
deforestation has a direct association with carbon dioxide
emissions into the atmosphere. Trees act as a major storage
depot for carbon, since they absorb
carbon dioxide from the atmosphere
to photosynthesis to produce
glucose which makes up trees. When
deforestation occurs, many of the
trees are burnt or are left to rot,
which results in releasing the carbon
that is stored in them as carbon dioxide. This in turn leads to
Greater concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

Recycling : we should recycle all the thing
that are made of tree ex. Paper, bags,
furniture, etc. because it lead to the
less cutting of tree and also
the products of trees will be
Wood factories: we should stop or lessen the production in those factories that cut down trees to make their products ex. paper, furniture, etc.
• People's basic needs: we all know that the colossal cause of deforestation is people's needs from the forests. Even though we depend on the forests, we should learn to lessen our dependency on the forests and their environment. So we need to use a little of them as possible and wisely.
