Deforestation

"Reversing Deforestation is complicated, planting a tree is simple." Do you know about Deforestation? Deforestation refers to the decrease in forest areas across the world that are lost for other uses such as agricultural croplands, urbanization or mining activities. It has been negatively affecting natural ecosystems, biodiversity and the climate. CAUSES OF DEFORESTATION Agriculture Commercial or industrial agriculture cause around 40% of forest loss – in the search for space to grow food, fibers or biofuel (such as palm oil, maize, cotton, sugar cane and many more) Forest fires We lose large number of trees each year due to fires in the forest. These Fires, whether causes by man or nature results in huge loss of forest cover. Urbanization With the expansion of cities and also due to population growth, more land is needed to establish housing and settlements. Therefore forest land is reclaimed. Effects of Deforestation Increase in Global Warming Trees play a major role in controlling global warming. The trees utilize greenhouse gases, restoring the balance in the atmosphere. With constant deforestation, the ratio of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has increased. Floods When it rains, trees absorb and store a large amount of water with the help of their roots. When they are cut down, the flow of water is disrupted, and the soil loses its ability to retain water. It leads to floods in some areas and droughts in others. Wildlife Extinction Due to the massive felling down of trees, various animal species are lost. They lose their habitat and also forced to move to a new location. Many of them are even pushed to extinction. How to Reduce and Prevent Deforestation? Plant a Tree where you can The most straightforward personal strategy to fight against deforestation is to plant a tree. Planting a tree could be considered a lifelong investment into the environment and your good mental health. Educate Others Still, many are entirely unaware of the global warming problem we’re facing. Educate your friends, family, and community by sharing the deforestation facts, and its causes and effects. You can make an impact! Use less paper Since the industry has such a high need for wood, it should come as no surprise that some part of the timber originates from illegal logging. Recycle paper and cardboard Imagine how many trees you can save and how much good they perform for the quality of our lives by recycling all your paper. If we can understand what forests can do for us, We can stop deforestation. "Green is not just a greenery, green is life" by Ilma Siddiqui

biodiversity and the climate.
CAUSES OF
DEFORESTATION
Agriculture
Commercial or industrial agriculture cause
around 40% of forest loss – in the search for
space to grow food, fibers or biofuel (such as
palm oil, maize, cotton, sugar cane and many
more)
Forest fires
We lose large number of trees
each year due to fires in the
forest. These Fires, whether
causes by man or nature
results in huge loss of forest
cover.
Urbanization
With the expansion of cities
and also due to population
growth, more land is needed to
establish housing and
settlements. Therefore forest
land is reclaimed.
