What’s the definition of deforestation? The answer is that our planet is slowly becoming a desert. This happens because humans cut down too much trees to make paper, build recreational services and more. Because of this, as we speak now, trees are still being cut down.
1. Lack of land in some countries with forests are causing deforestation. For example, more than half of land area of Brazil is covered with the Amazonian rainforest, and therefore, many trees are being cut down to allow homes to be built for the ever increasing population.
2. Conversion of forests to agricultural land to feed the growing human population.
3.Since there are lots of people around, they need wood to make stationary (ie books, newspapers).
