Short essay on the effect of Deforestation on us



A tree is, perhaps, the most valuable gift provided to the mankind by the mother nature. It gives, us all what is required for human life. The very birth starts with the process of provision of wood, shade, fruits and oxygen. The exchange is nothing but the cutting by the man who fails to obey his part and destroys basic land itself.

“The sun, the moon and the stars would have disappeared long ago, had they happened to be with the reach of predatory human hands.” -Havelock Ellis

The reference is further confirmed by F. D. Roosevelt who says ‘The nation that destroys its soil, will destroy itself’.

Man is surrounded by greed or lust to earn more. Industrialization induces vacating the land and fixing rocks of industry or towers for industrial offices. This process is rightly described by the people, who visited New York and saw the high building with no trees near about, ‘This city of rocks’, dwells and exposed to all roots of danger for humanity’. In the same way land grabbers are capturing the forests and making big buildings. Deforestation not only involves the tree destruction but also manages the wild animals. They as much block the natural circle and this ultimately results into race destruction. This action ahs long-lasting effect on the survival of human race.

The polluted environment can cast severe effects on human life. Value of trees should be explained to all the people and they should be encouraged to include tree plantation in our traditional life. There is an effective saying that everybody should plant a tree on his birthday every year. In the same manner, presenting trees as birthday gift should be popularized. This will help us to restore tree forestation as much as we can.
