It is very important to increase forest area as:
- Forests provide us with clean air to breathe. They also decrease pollution.
- They are home to many species of birds and animals. If we continue cutting   down their habitat they will all soon be extinct.
- They are an important part of the water cycle, cutting them down will disturb the   delicate balance of nature.
- Trees prevent soil erosion too.
