In order to meet the ever-increasing demand in factories and for shelter, trees are being continually cut. Is it justified to cut trees for such projects? Discuss and prepare a brief report.


 According to a United Nations report, agriculture is the major cause of deforestation. Subsistence farming is responsible for 48% of deforestation; commercial agriculture is responsible for 32% of deforestation; logging is responsible for 14% of deforestation and fuel wood removals make up 5% of deforestation. This report shows that agriculture is responsible for 80% of deforestation. Logging which is done to supply wood for construction activities contributes 14% but this also a significant number.Since human beings also need natural resources for their use so they have every right to exploit natural resources for their benefit. But being the most intelligent species on the earth, it is our responsibility to protect the earth. This can be done by proper planning for afforestation so that removed trees can be replaced with new trees.
