Over the past Century , The World has been a

number of devastation effects of unchecked population growth and continued industrial expansion. widespread deforestation.

One of most sobering effects has been the Forests not only provide beauty and variety to our

World but also served as a crucial elements of our forests have been ravaged , we face a number of disastrous , effects not least of which is the threat of global warming.

A recent estimate is that about

10000000/1 core km area are deforesting each year.

Asia have lost their 40% of their forests. Africa little more than half World 50% forest has been deforested.


Cutting down trees has grave impact on our

environment. First the trees help in bringing rain. They are an integral part of the rain cycle as they give out water in the form of watervapour during transpiration. Trees also have a process called guttation wherein excess water is exuded through the ends of the veins.


Trees cool the

environment and bring down the temperature on warm days. Trees give us shade and many other plants known as sciophytes flourish in their shade.


Reason of Deforestation
Originally, deforestation was simply

converting a part of a forest into agricultural patch of land. There are many historical records of deforestation where even the earliest civilizations of man already contributed to the loss of trees in the forests.


Reason of Deforestation
Nowadays, deforestation is a result of

human's want for more industrial or residential land area. As the need for more houses arise and as the evergrowing industries increase, more and more trees are uprooted, taken down or simply burned, just to accommodate the need for more land. And this is highly devastating, not just to humans but also for other species and the environment.

When large area of trees are cut down , That

water often stays in the soil and flows away, which can create much drier local conditions.

Which adds up to 50,000 /50 thousend lost

The result is that we are seeing a mass

How to stop cutting forest?

Providing education to the citizens We should tell the citizens about the actual

side effects of cutting down tress.

To find alternative means other than the use

of tree for usual activities. For example : cooking and furniture etc.

Instead we are to use plastic and iron material

for furniture purpose and also the use of Gas for cooking.
