Deforestation has emerged as one of the biggest man-made disasters recently. Rising human population needs more area for residential purpose.
Every year, more and more trees and vegetation are being erased just to fulfill the various needs of the human race. For this, forests are either burned down or cut to make space for constructing homes and apartments.
This, however, has a damning effect on our environment.
Effect of Deforestation on the Environment: Deforestation means fewer trees and more land.
Deforestation usually occurs due to city expansion.
As habitats increase in cities, there is a need to create more space the for homes, organizations, and factories.
However, because of excessive exploitation by humans, it has been seen that the trees are being cut down mercilessly.
This act of cleaning the green cover is known as deforestation.
Preventing Deforestation: Reducing or preventing deforestation is easier said than done.
This is because trees are cut down because there is a pressing need to do so.
