Deforestation, clearing or thinning of forests by humans to make the land available for other uses. Deforestation is a major driver of terrestrial habitat loss and habitat fragmentation and contributes to global warming.
Learn about historical and modern deforestation and its effects. Jan 23, Effects of Acid Rain. After studying the Hubbard Brook Forest and other areas, researchers found several important effects of acid deposition on both natural and man-made environments. Aquatic settings are the most clearly affected by acid deposition, however, because acidic precipitation falls directly into them. In India, we have this practice in North-east and to some extend in Andhra Pradesh, Bihar and M.P.
which contribute to nearly half of the forest clearing annually. 2. Commercial logging: (Which supplies the world market with woods such as meranti, teak, mahogany and ebony) destroys trees as well as opening up forest for agriculture.
The best time for taking hardwood cuttings is from early autumn when the leaves drop to late winter.
Nov 18, In a time when the world is experiencing the devastating effects of global warming and deforestation, trees have left has never been more relevant. Globally, there are estimated to be trillion trees. This is according to a study published in the journal Nature. This means that there are roughly trees for every person on earth. Without trees there is also increased soil erosion which depletes soil fertility and the final outcome is the loss of arable land.
In the long-term, it results in famine, hunger, and food insecurity. Deforestation also heightens the possibility of complete desertification which can worsen the effects of drought and aridity.
Disrupted Livelihoods. I thought trees were a mess of tangled branches, but I saw a pattern in the way the tree branches grew.

I had a hunch that the trees had a secret to tell about this shape. Jun 29, Propagation by cuttings is preferred, especially for ornamental planting.

Stem cuttings can be taken from trees of any age and size. Cuttings of diameter 6 cm or larger will root better than cuttings of smaller diameter. Mar 16, The cutting down of trees causes billions of tons of carbon dioxide (a greenhouse gas) to be released into the air. By planting trees, you are helping to combat global warming because trees absorb carbon dioxide. You are also helping to reduce run off water from the hills.
