 To Save The Trees and Why it’s Important

    To save the trees is very important there are many different reasons of why saving the trees are important. Trees are vital to the plant and almost all life on earth depends on it they give us oxygen store carbon dioxide also provide us with material that’s very important for tools and shelter it’s important to not waste since they also give habitats for other endangered animals. Another couple reasons why to prevent deforestation for huge forests like the tundra and the Amazon and many others they all provide and stabilize the atmosphere. Some forests are home to many different endangered animals even ones are one endangered  but it’s just wrong to destroy homes even some people live in the forests up to 200 million people. Some climate changes are somewhat related to deforestation, so if we prevent deforestation it will help some climate change problems. Some forests provide irreplaceable habitats, ecosystems and some cultural functions, if you destroy some of these irreplaceable habitats you might destroy a entire ecosystem with it. Finally even trees provide water, research proves that 70% of fresh water originates from trees

    Well to help prevent deforestation you need to know what deforestation is first. deforestation is the conversion of forested areas to non-forest land for use such as arable land, pasture, urban use, logged area, or wasteland. Deforestation can also be seen as removal of forests leading to several imbalances ecologically and environmentally and results in declines in habitat and biodiversity. Urbanization, Mining, Fires, Logging and Agricultural activities are few of the causes of deforestation. At the current rate of deforestation is going now most of all of the forests would be depleted in just about 100 years. Right now the biggest problem of deforestation is agriculture, farmers cut forests for more planting crops. Not all deforestation is on purpose some of it is on accident like natural wildfires  and subsequent overgrazing blocking room for the younger trees to grow.

Ending deforestation is the best chance to conserve wildlife and defend the rights of forest communities, here are some ways to prevent deforestation. For people to help some great ways are using less items, eating sustainable foods, and choosing  recycled or sustainable wood. Another great easy way to help is just to spread awareness, spreading awareness can be difficult but can also be very effective. Another way is to go vegetarian When animals are left in forest to graze plants and trees get destroyed if you can’t go vegetarian try to eat meat at a minimum. The most straightforward solution is just to plant a tree, planting a tree can be considered a lifelong investment into the environment and can good for your mental health. Use less paper, over 2 million trees are cut down everyday just to supply the paper demand of the United States globally 40 percent of timber is used to make paper like products. Finally recycle paper and cardboard  products, did you know that one ton of paper put to recycle saves 17 entire trees then those 17 trees sequester around 250 pounds carbon dioxide from the air every single year.

Some great facts about forests and deforestation in general that forests cover more than 30% of the worlds land this is will be going down slowly. It is estimated that in 100 years that there will be no more rain forests, agriculture is one of main causes of deforestation as stated before. One and half acres are cut down every second, and just in every minute a size of a football field worth of trees are cut down. The loss of forests contributes between 12 percent and 17 percent of annual global greenhouse gas emissions. Without any rain forests we would have little to non medicine since the rain forest contains more than 121 natural remedies. Without the Amazon rain forest 20% of oxygen generation would be lost. Half of the tropical trees have already been cleared out. 25% of cancer fighting organisms are found in the Amazon rain forest. With the rate of all rain forests are expected to be cleared in 100 years with that also 28,000 species are going to be extinct. Worldwide more than 1.6 billion people rely on forests products for all or part of their livelihoods. Tropical forests, where deforestation is most prevalent, hold more than 210 gigatonnes of carbon. These are only some facts about deforestation and why its very important  to help prevent and stop deforestation.

In conclusion stopping and preventing deforestation has many benefits and no cons. Some benefits that if we stop deforestation in the tropics that those trees help stabilize the environment. Another great reason that trees are needed for breathing without any trees it would be impossible to survive on this planet. Trees help reduce the risk of flooding by letting the trees absorb excess water and stores it for future use. Just about any living organism including humans depend on forests for medicine and even food and materials. By stopping and preventing deforestation shows the world our commitment about having a sustainable future. These are only some reasons why stopping and preventing deforestation is very important.
