A forest is an area of land with many trees. Temperature and rainfall are the two of the most important things for forests. Forests with their lush green leaves add beauty to the land.
Forests occupy one-third of the Earth's land area and are found on all corners of the globe.
Forests make the atmosphere healthy they are an essential part of the world. Three hundred million people worldwide live in forests and 1.6 billion depend on them for their livelihoods.
Importance of the forests cannot be denied. Forests also provide habitat for plants and animals, many of which are still undiscovered. They protect our watersheds. They provide places for recreation. They supply the oxygen we need to survive. They provide the timber for products we use every day. There are countless things that we get from forests. Forests take many forms, depending on their latitude, local soil, rainfall and prevailing temperatures. But forests are being destroyed and degraded. Deforestation comes in many forms, including fires, clear-cutting for agriculture, development, unsustainable logging for timber, and degradation due to climate change. This impacts people’s livelihoods and threatens a wide range of plant and animal species.
Around 46-58 million square miles of forest are lost each year—People don't realize the vitality while cutting off forests. Do u know in Indonesia, the island of Sumatra has lost 85% of its forests—primarily due to conversion for oil palm and pulp plantations— And one more thing more than 25% of the medicines we use are originated from rainforest plants!
The forests are the lungs of our planet they play a crucial role in stabilizing global climate by converting CO2 into oxygen. So protect forests.
