HARMFUL EFFECTS OF DEFORESTATION TO OUR ENVIRONMENT  

Most of the people in the countryside would experience the possibility of deforestation. Since most of the cities and modern metropolitan could not have more natural views and nature to have. There could also be a big effect when trees are cut down and burned. The process of stump grinding is also very common now a days. Some of the famers could have a great reason on why they are doing this. It could be about to develop the place or even making the trees used for another purpose. Even if, they have a valid reason to do those things, there are still many harmful effects to the environment.  

DEFORESTATION

  • NO MORE HABITAT FOR MANY ANIMALS: This is the very visible effect of deforestation to the environment. By doing this kind of activity to the plants in the forest, animals living here could be greatly affected because this is the place where they live and get their food. It would give them a disastrous living condition since no more trees and plants can be found anywhere due to the deforestation. 
  • HARMFUL GASES ARE INCREASING IN NUMBER: Since, there will be no trees, this would drastically affect the gases in the environment. We all know the trees and green plants give oxygen to us every single second of the day. It helps us to breathe fresh air and give a pleasant living condition. By doing this harmful activity, it lessens as well the amount of oxygen that we can use to inhale. This will result to a hotter feeling and high temperature. 
  • WATER CYCLE: A lot of people don’t know that when deforestation is happening, it also affects the water level and control of the Earth. This cycle helps to regulate and normalize the everything for us not to experience drought. If there will be fewer number of trees due to some illegal activities, there is no enough water to be returned to the ground and soil. Farmers would have a hard time growing some crops and vegetables. 
  • FLOODS AND EROSIONS: No more trees to absorb the water. Due to heavy rain and nothing will get the water from the soil. The ground will be weak enough and this will be the cause of soil erosion especially to mountainous places. City people would greatly experience higher floods and unstoppable rain. People living in the country side would have a hard time since the water flood will wash away their soil and crops as nothing will stop and prevent them from happening.  
  • NO BETTER PLACE TO SEE: For those people and tribes living in the center of the forest or even dependent to the resources given by the place. It would be a trouble for them to find a new place. This will give them the sign to vague the place and try to find a different living place to stay.  

You can do many things to save the life of the people, animals and trees. Don’t wait for something bad to happen before you do any actions.
