Trees are a vital part of life on Earth. Without forests, living would be not possible. Like food, water and shelter forests are important for life indeed. In fact, forests are the source for food, water and shelter for many living things. We humans might be civilized and moved to a city life.

  3. Unavailability of food
  4. Change in climatic changes which makes the seasons unreliable and changing again and again
  5. Soil erodes more frequently than before deforestation took place. Water easily washes the nutrients from the top soil which makes the soil unfit for irrigation and agricultural purposes
  6. Emission of Carbon di oxide which increases Global Warming greatly
  7. With reduced number of forests Pollution increases which affects the environment, human beings and other organisms consequently
  8. Conflict over lands, resources and food affects the social culture and leads to racial and ethnic problems too
  9. As years pass, cost of goods and amenities will increases and interest rates will also boost up
