Deforestation is the growth portion for global concerns. Within modern years its effects are intended or natural withdrawal of forests on a huge scale, often resulting in damage to the quality of the land and adverse environmental effects. Rainforests take up close to 7% of our planet but hold over half of the animal life on our planet and nearly 80 percent of the world’s species are found in rainforests (SaveTheAmazon.org).
Elimination of trees results in lost habitat, putting thousands of species in danger of extinction these forests not only home our animal life but also help maintain the water on our planet and also keep us able to breathe by producing oxygen.
To begin with, the carbon cycle is one of the critical environmental cycles. There is a fine balance to the carbon cycle, where trees and plants, through the process of photosynthesis, turn carbon dioxide and water into glucose and oxygen by using energy from the sun. But when trees are lost to deforestation, the period is obstructed. The forest trees use carbon dioxide as well as pollutants from the air.
When the trees are burned or left to decay, carbon is released into the air as C02 and(Climate and weather.net). If we have fewer trees, the atmosphere will be drier. To prevent deforestation we must protect our forests and woodlands, the animals that live in them, the soil, the waters, the very air that we all breathe, and for all humanity’s health and well-being, we must use paper products responsibly and sparingly; and without doubt, we must make sure to recycle paper products.
On the other hand next is the water cycle which is the main source from where we get rain, snow, and drainage of streams and rivers which evaporates and returns to the atmosphere.
But if the water cycle is affected by deforestation it can cause a disruption of the areas normal water cycle by changing the about of water runoff into watercourses, or the amount of water that is added to the water table. The removal of trees also causes the water cycle to create problems for those who depend upon the land and will be turned into larger deserts. If rainfall is reduced the land becomes drier and, the hotter the weather gets which can cause a fire and produce haze and can pollute the air.
All in all, deforestation can also affect biodiversity in a number of ways. Trees may be removed from particular areas in order to make various wood products, to clear land for new buildings or roads, or for creating new farming or grazing land. It can also occur as a consequence of natural disasters or accidental fires, erosion slides and lastly air pollution. Also When trees are removed or destroyed en masse, the species living in that forest lose their natural habitats, and some are not able to survive the change. When animals or plants die as a result of deforestation, the biodiversity of that area drops. Fewer species in an area means a less biologically diverse environment.
In Conclusion, Deforestation has become a huge concern in today’s life as there has been a rise in the decline of forests. Trees are cut down in order to make paper products as well as for livestock farming and so on. In order to maintain the population of the Earth, We must remember to recycle so that we can reuse the disposed of products to make things and to be less dependent on wood and other common sources.
And also to regrow trees and plants so that it can create a new home to new species of life and to reduce fires. By doing these things we can save the earth and help restore earth’s life core and make it be an eco-friendly environment for all in the near future.
