

Deforestation, clearance or clearing is the removal of a forest or stand of trees
where the land is thereafter converted to a non-forest use.



Deforestation occurs for many reasons: trees are cut down to be used or sold as
fuel or timber, while cleared land is used as pasture for livestock, plantations of
commodities and settlements.



Deforested regions typically incur significant adverse soil erosion and frequently
degrade into wasteland.



According to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change
(UNFCCC) secretariat, the overwhelming direct cause of deforestation is
agriculture.



Some argue that poor people are more likely to clear forest because they have
no alternatives, others that the poor lack the ability to pay for the materials and
labour needed to clear forest.


Deforestation is ongoing and is
shaping climate and
geography.



Deforestation is a contributor to
global warming and is often
cited as one of the major
causes of the enhanced green
house effect.



Faster heating of land in
deforested areas.



Deforestation causes carbon
dioxide to linger in the
atmosphere


The water cycle is also affected by
deforestation



Trees extract groundwater through their
roots
and release
it
into the
atmosphere. When part of a forest is
removed, the trees no longer transpire
this water, resulting in less rainfall.



As a result, the presence or absence of
trees can change the quantity of water
on the surface, in the soil or
groundwater, or in the atmosphere

  • 7.  Increased amount of run off.  Tree removal on steep slopes with shallow soil thus increases the risk of landslides, which can threaten people living nearby.  Undisturbed forests have a very low rate of soil loss
  • 8.  Deforestation causing extinction in species.  Forest removal – resulting in reduced biodiversity.  It has been estimated that we are losing 137 plant, animal and insect species every single day due to rainforest deforestation, which equates to 50,000 species a year.
  • 9.  Reduce global GDP.  The forest products industry.  Illegal logging causing loss of high amount of money.  Pressure from developing countries.
  • 10. • The was an event that occurred 300 million years ago. • Climate change devastated tropical rainforests causing the extinction of many plant and animal species. • Rainforests once covered 14% of the earth's land surface; now they cover a mere 6% • The first evidence of deforestation appears in the Mesolithic Period who used fire to create openings for red deer and wild boar. • The Neolithic period saw extensive deforestation for farming lands by stone axes
  • 11. INDUSTRIAL ERA  In the 19th century, introduction of steamboats in the United States was the cause of deforestation of banks of major rivers, such as the Mississippi River  The steamboat crews cut wood every day from the riverbanks to fuel the steam engines.  Trees were also cut to make snag pullers to improve navigation.  Lands were also cleared for agriculture.
  • 12. RATES OF DEFORESTATION  Global deforestation sharply accelerated around 1852.  It has been estimated that about half of the Earth's mature tropical forests have now been destroyed.  A 2002 analysis of satellite imagery suggested that the rate of deforestation in the humid tropics was roughly 23% lower than the most commonly quoted rates.
  • 14. REDUCING EMISSIONS United Nations and the World Bank, have begun to develop programs aimed at curbing deforestation.  Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest degradation to encourage developing countries to limit and/or roll back deforestation.  Concern of High Forest Cover with High Rates of Deforestation (HFHD) and Low Forest Cover with High Rates of Deforestation (LFHD). 
  • 15. FARMING  New methods are being developed to farm more intensively, such as highyield hybrid crops, green house, autonomous building gardens, and hydroponics.  In cyclic agriculture, cattle are grazed on farm land that is resting and rejuvenating.  Intensive farming can also decrease soil nutrients by consuming at an accelerated rate the trace minerals needed for crop growth.  Low dependence on fossil fuels and agrochemical
  • 16. MONITORING DEFORESTATION • methods for reducing and monitoring deforestation. • Deforestation is typically assessed by quantifying the amount of area deforested, measured at the present time. • From an environmental point of view, quantifying the damage and its possible consequences is a more important task, while conservation efforts are more focused on forested land protection and development of land-use alternatives to avoid continued deforestation. • Deforestation rate and total area deforested, have been widely used for monitoring deforestation in many regions, including the Brazilian Amazon deforestation monitoring by INPE.[45]
  • 17. FOREST MANAGEMENT  Efforts to stop deforestation have been attempted for many centuries.  Slash and burn changing to slash and char would prevent rapid deforestation rate.  Mixed with biomass it brings the creation of terra preta one of the richest soils on the planet and the only one known to regenerate itself.
  • 18. REFORESTATION • It has been claimed that at more than 1 billion trees have been planted every year since 1982. • It has been calculated that plantations yielding 10 cubic meters per hectare annually could supply all the timber required for international trade on 5% of the world's existing forestland. • youngsters have helped to plant over 6 million mangrove trees. • Use of slogans in many countries like ‘Cut One Plant Two’. • Thematic map mark the amount of afforestation required to repair the damage caused by people.
