What is deforestation?
Deforestation is when humans remove or clear large areas of forest lands and related ecosystems for non-forest use. These include clearing for farming purposes, ranching and urban use. In these cases, trees are never re-planted.
Since the industrial age, about half of world's original forests have been destroyed and millions of animals and living things have been endangered. Despite the improvements in education, information and general awareness of the importance of forests, deforestation has not reduced much, and there are still many more communities and individuals who still destroy forest lands for personal gains.
Why do humans clear forest lands?

To be used for farming purposes (grazing fields for livestock, orlarge scale farming activities)
To make room for human settlement and urbanization (these include making space for shelter, industries and roads)
To make room for mining
There is a fun way to remember the most important points in forest preservation called TREES which means...
• Teach others about the importance of the environment and how they can help save rainforests.
• Restore damaged ecosystems by planting trees on land where forests have been cut down.
• Encourage people to live in a way that doesn't hurt the environment.
• Establish parks to protect rainforests and wildlife.
• Support companies that operate in ways that minimize damage to the environment.

There are three types of forests that are explained briefly below:

An evergreen forest is a forest consisting entirely or mainly of evergreen trees that retain green foliage all year round.
They occupy about seven per cent of the Earth’s surface and harbour more than half of the world’s plants and animals. They are found mostly near the equator
These forests are dense,...
