All around the world, millions of acres of forest are being cut down every year for timber, agriculture fields, farms, roads, and buildings. As a result, the planet is losing all the different ecosystem services that trees provide, including oxygen production, limiting erosion, food and shelter for animals. Learn about the negative impacts of clearing forested areas and discover how to harvest trees in a sustainable manner, restore deforested areas, and protect existing forest.
