People shouldn’t cut down trees from the forest. We need to take care of the forest. Forests are habitats for a lot of species of animals and plants. People need wood for resources therefore, they should replant after cutting down trees. If people keep on cutting down trees, there would soon be no homes for animals, and some plants.
Deforestation is when people remove or clear large areas of forest lands. Since the industrial age, about half of the world’s original forests have been destroyed and millions of animals and living things, such as plants and insects, have been endangered. With the animals being endangered it can lead to animal extinction.
Animal extinction is when there is no more animals of that types. It can be because of deforestation and people who hunt animals for their meat and skin. The skins can be used for furniture, decoration and clothes.
The causes of deforestation is people cutting down trees and not replanting them back. The effects of these are animals getting endangered and can get extinct. It is bad for the environment.
Some of the plants in the forests are important and special, some are rare, so they’re only found in the forest. Without the forest there might be no more plants of that type such as orchids. Plants, such as the Cat’s Claw, can be used as medicine to treat certain diseases.
Animals needs a home, that is the forest, it is also a place where the animal gets its food and water. Humans need resources to make houses, furniture, decorations and more. So they cut down the trees without thinking of what the animal needs.
