    • The animal species and human groups who live in areas with a loss of trees, lose their homes and ways of life. There is a loss of protection from trees without the cover of trees and there is less oxygen, and protection from climate change.
    • Sustainable harvest is the idea in which trees are cut at a rate that allows them to regrow in a given area at the same rate at which they are gathered. This is a form of conservation. Another form of conservation is to stop the cutting down of forests all together such as national parks.
    • • Deforestation can cause underground wells, under and around the roots of trees, to dry out. • The loss of habitat has a direct ripple effect on humans (E.g. increase of mosquito population, bats feed on mosquitos but have no habitat). • Vegetation loss (provides a good filter for pollutants entering groundwater, lakes, rivers, streams, etc.) • Trees help to moderate temperature, and release oxygen into the atmosphere.
