<Name><Course><Date><Instructor>DeforestationDeforestation is the destruction of forests worldwide. A forest provides many purposes,involving travelling nutrients, providing shade or habitat/homes for wildlife, and creating carbon-based products, which reduce carbon in the atmosphere (Environmental Science, 2015). Treesassume an indispensable part in ensuring our condition in a few ways. Less woods imply that themanageability of our planet earth is imperiled. Deforestation has negative impacts on theenvironment; it increases carbon dioxide, destroys home to wildlife, and is myopic.Forests are vital because they contain trees, which gives us oxygen, stores carbon, stabilizesoil, and is home to many wild animals. However, when are forest is cut down, the benefits that itprovides are taken away. Deforestation has many negative impacts on the environment(Theilmann, 2013). When a tree is cut down it can no longer absorb the carbon; also, the carbonthat was stored is now released into the atmosphere as carbon dioxide. This increases thegreenhouse gas emissions, and this contributes to global warming and climate change. Carbondioxide is one of the greenhouse gases apart of the greenhouse effect. The greenhouse effect is theprocess of trapping gases to heat Earth’s atmosphere. Climate change is harmful because it causesice to melt and higher sea levels, more wildfires, droughts, and increase in natural disasters. Treesare also important because they provide an anchor to the soil, the loss of trees causes soil erosion;which is the wearing of top soil (Longobardi, Montenegro, Beltrami, & Eby, 2016). Deforestationdrives environmental change. Woodland soils are soggy, however without assurance from sun-1
blocking tree cover, they quickly dry out. Trees likewise help sustain the water cycle by sending
