Deforestation is tearing down trees and lumber from the forest, whether this is done legally or illegally, this practice is a very controversial one. The process of logging begins with cutting down the trees needed to cut into logs. These trees are then loaded onto a truck and transported to a location to be cut into logs. This process removes the natural habitat for many species and drives climate change. The soil that the trees grow in is rich and moist while the trees are standing, but once the trees have been harvested, the soil quickly dries out due to the sun. Trees also play a vital role in the water cycle; as they return water vapor back into the atmosphere. Without that role being filled, these forests can quickly become a barren wasteland. Trees also offer as a canopy for the forest that guards the soil from the roasting sun during the day, and holds the heat during the night. Without that canopy, these forests can suffer from great temperature swings which quickens the process of burning out the soil and has a great effect on the land. One of the biggest effects of deforestation is the release of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Trees absorb these gases, but without these forests, all of the greenhouse gases that these…
