Top 10 Reasons why is it important to conserve forests
To conserve forest is important, as well as necessary; forests are equivalent to the LUNGS, as they supply oxygen. They are home to different species, are rich in flora and fauna. Forest and trees are the life support not only for human beings but other species present in our biological system.
Here I am providing you 10 top reasons for, why it is necessary to conserve forest to save planet earth.
1. Home to People
There are three hundred million people around the world; living in a forest actively and also depends on forest for their food resource, livelihoods, medicines and source of jobs. The number of people depends on forest for their living is more than 1.6 million according to the report of FAO. About ten million people are having jobs in forest departments. 60 million people solely depend on forest in every aspect. We cultivate a wood for the furniture we use from forests, wood for fireworks purposes and papers.
2. Green Therapy
Many people haven’t heard of this type of treatment, but this therapy is one of the best therapies for the peace of mind, by conserving forest you not only save someone’s home but also can spend some peaceful time there and can also stay away from the crowd of the world so that you can enjoy some time in the company of beautiful and best wildlife. When you spend some time peacefully in the lap of nature god you not only feel mentally relaxed but also physically energetic. When you manage to spend some time in the arms of greenery, you will feel peace within your mind.
3. Oxygen Providers and Carbon Absorbers
We all know that we human beings are nothing without oxygen, and the only provider of oxygen is our trees and as we all know growing trees absorb carbon Dioxide and store it in their roots, trunks, forest soils and leaves for future fossil purposes. Carbon Dioxide absorbed by trees stays for thousand and thousand years in the form of wood and fossil that is why living trees is an essential part of our ecosystem.
4. Soil erosion prevention and flood prevention
Extreme cutting of trees and plants cause soil erosion, and soil erosion effects fielding and cultivation. The only plain way by which we can stop or prevent soil erosion is by planting more and more trees and stop excessive cutting of forests for our selfish purposes. During heavy rain flows, roots of trees absorb most of the water which prevents damage to soil, properties and buildings and also slow down the flood flow. To stop soil erosion and prevent floods forest conservation is necessary.
5. Rainfall increment
Trees aide the water cycle, roots of trees absorbs soil. With the help of transpiration, it transfers excess water. The water vapors present in the air then condensed water vapor formed clouds; this is the sole reason forests are identified as rain magnet. To increase the average ratio of rainfall per year, forest conservation is necessary. The level of rainfall is needed to be an increase in every part of the world. Trees play an important role in the water cycle and for pleasant weather and other lots benefits for human beings harvesting wood is necessary.
6. Aesthetic Value
Imagine a green beautiful garden outside your home; wouldn’t you just love roaming around in your beautiful garden all day long?
Doesn’t that bring you mental peace just by imaging it? Do you know why? Don’t you know every human being if possible tries to bring a small green forest into their home? Well, that is what we call Aesthetic.
The bit of greenery all over the house, colorful ambience due to flowers adds beauty and aestheticism to your home, and not to forget to have max. Number of plants around your homes purifies the air you breathe. That what forest does to our planet earth, it add aestheticism to our planet, and simply makes it more peaceful and beautiful.
7. for medicine and herbs.
Another best and important gift forest has given to man-kind are the medicines which we derived from plants extracts. A number of drugs and herbs we can be obtained from plants extracts is countless, and even science has proved it that these medicines which can only be achieved by thick trees present in forests. There are the number of trees which still is left untouched, therefore, chances are that there are drugs and herbs present which can cure some incurable diseases of the present. That is why if we haven’t paid attention towards forest conservation soon there will be no herbs and medicine.
8. Heritage for our future generation
These resources of the forest, its beauty, original bits for living is what we have the heritage which we have received from our ancestors’ and just like they have left this legacy for us it is our moral duty to left these things for our upcoming generation, just like as we will left our wealth for our children’s and grandchildren’s leaving a green earth is what necessary for them. So that as we live in a green and peaceful environment they should also enjoy it, after all it is for the future of our planet and our generation.
9. Bio Diversity
Would you feel good and happy if someone razed your home? The answer would be NO always. Just like these cities and countries are your home, forest is the home of flora and fauna. Whereas animal, reptiles and other species resides in forest and we in the name of developing our countries razed up their homes, each and every species plays a vital role in our ecological system, and in order to save/ stop/ prevent bio diversity we should have to give attention toward forest conservation.
10. To maintain Ecological Balance
If there will be no forest or trees, no oxygen would be there and no oxygen means no us or any other species. As we all know each and every species is important for or ecological system. In order to balance or ecological system we should have to pay or take serious action to save forest. Less number of trees means less rain falls which will harm our water cycle. Forest conservation is necessary for our better future and present. Plantation of trees also decrease heat or say global warming. More forest means more peaceful life.
