Forests are one of the earth’s greatest natural resources there is a reason why we often figuratively speak of ‘the tree of life’, forests are key to supporting life on earth eight thousand years ago, half of the earth’s land surface was covered by forests or wooded areas.
Forests are essential for life on earth three hundred million people worldwide live in forests and 16 billion depend on them for their livelihoods forests also provide habitat for a vast array of plants and animals, many of which are still undiscovered.
The destruction of forests forests are very important to the enviroment because they use carbon dioxide cutting down trees is called deforestation and it can have serious effects if animals’ homes, which are built in and around the trees, are destroyed, many species will become extinct if we want to save the earth, we should stop. Stretching out from the equator on all earth’s land surfaces is a wide belt of forests of amazing diversity and productivity tropical forests include dense rainforests, where rainfall is abundant year-round seasonally moist forests, where rainfall is abundant, but seasonal and drier, more open woodlands. The atmosphere is a mixture of nitrogen (78%), oxygen (21%), and other gases (1%) that surrounds earth high above the planet, the atmosphere becomes thinner until it gradually reaches space high above the planet, the atmosphere becomes thinner until it gradually reaches space.
Deforestation is the permanent destruction of forests in order to make the land available for other uses an estimated 18 million acres (73 million hectares) of forest, which is roughly the size. For example, forests have higher evapotranspiration than other ecosystems, such as grasslands, because of their deeper roots and greater leaf area thus forests have a net moistening effect on the atmosphere and become a moisture source for downwind ecosystems.
Deforestation can have a negative impact on the environment the most dramatic impact is a loss of habitat for millions of species eighty percent of earth’s land animals and plants live in forests, and many cannot survive the deforestation that destroys their homes. The no forests on flat earth truthers believe devils tower in wyoming is the stump of a real tree mladen antonov / getty something tremendous is happening over the last few weeks, without too many of its globe-headed detractors noticing, a surprisingly vast community on the tattered fringes of intellectual orthodoxy is in turmoil.
It has been estimated that about half of the earth’s mature tropical forests between 75 million and 8 million square km of the original 15 million to 16 million square km that until 1947 covered the planet have now been cleared. 3 the forests are very important because we use the carbon dioxide they produce 4 one of the main reasons why the forests are being destroyed is to feed some species of animals 5 deforestation is the planting of trees on an area where they have been cut down 6 there is nothing we can do to help save forests.
