Because of Deforestation, 32.5 million acres of forest continue to be lost worldwide per year, having devastating effects on the planet. Deforestation has many negative impacts on our planet. We cannot survive without trees, they provide us with oxygen, food, a shelter for humans and wildlife, stabilize soil, store carbon, and cutting them down can be very crucial. How can we help people living in urban environments help generate effective solutions to combat this? 

The causes of deforestation often originate outside the forestry sector, making it challenging to find a global solution. Deforestation has caused a number of issues on our planet; the main one is air quality. Due to the cutting of trees our air has been less clean and more polluted because trees absorb odors and pollutant gases such as nitrogen oxides, ammonia, sulfur dioxide, and ozone and filter particulates out of the air by trapping them on their leaves and bark. The average time a tree takes to grow is 10 years. During this time we would suffer from climate change, which the trees are helping us to prevent. Deforestation can occur as a result of direct and indirect economic, institutional, political, natural, or social factors that impact other vegetation causing climate change, desertification, soil erosion, fewer crops, flooding, and increased greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.


Deforestation can lead to a direct loss of wildlife habitat as well as general degradation of their habitats. The removal of trees and other types of vegetation increases the chance of availability in food, shelter, and breeding habitat for wildlife animals without planting them back. It would destroy wildlife habitat and the ozone layer. Trees prevent sediment runoff, and forests hold and use more water than farms or grasslands. Trees also deplete crops and vegetables, which means less food for humans and animals. One solution to putting an end to deforestation and maximizing the lifespan of any wildlife animal using less paper and other products made from trees while incorporating biomaterials and substitute plants to make paper and replant them.  By doing this, the world would see a decrease in people’s suffering from polluted or chemically induced air, which causes them to develop asthma or other diseases. Another solution is educating friends, family, and community about how everyday actions can impact forests around the world, which can change the way many wildlife animals and people live. The world cannot rely on false solutions like biofuels, biomass, or carbon offsets that rely on wishful thinking and emit more greenhouse gases. We must stop deforestation now!
