Road building is a factor that eliminates these remote areas of crops and pastures, to enhance trade. A limited amount of deforestation is caused by road building but is still deforestation. When doing so, this brings logging into play with the deforestation process. Logging is usually introduced f... ... middle of paper ... ...ith the deforestation process.

Deforestation is one of many forms of things that harms the earth. It is caused by clearing for agricultural, land, and logging. Logging could be legal and illegal, in this case both, was going on in Russia. Most of the tree loss in Russia can be attributed to forest fires. It becomes more intense as the climate warms.
Sometimes loggers do illegal things like building roads to access forests which leads to more and more deforestation. The forests are also cut as an outcome of growing urban sprawl. Not all deforestation is planned on purpose, some just occur because of wildfires and overgrazing which prevents young trees to grow. The biggest effect of deforestation is the impact on the habitat for many species. More than half of the earth animals and plants live in the forests so if the forests are gone they are too.
1) First, we talked about the effects of deforestation and why it's a problem. 2) Second, we learned about the many causes of deforestation. 3) Lastly, we covered how to solve this problem. People will not stop cutting down trees because they need the wood for housing and paper and other basic needs. If people stop cutting down trees illegally and remember to replant trees after harvesting, then the endangered species might survive, and it could decrease global warming.
The road development itself causes a limited amount of deforestation. But roads also provide entry to previously inaccessible—and often unclaimed—land. Logging, both legal and illegal, often follows road expansion (and in some cases is the reason for the road expansion). When loggers have harvested an area’s valuable timber, they move on. The roads and the logged areas become a magnet for settlers—farmers and ranchers who slash and burn the remaining forest for cropland or cattle pasture, completing the deforestation chain that began with road building.
Excessive logging obviously leads to deforestation as is evident in most areas of the world today. The savannas of Africa, the steppes of eastern Europe and Russia, the pampas of Argentina, and at least some of the prairies of North America used to be forested before human disturbance. The Forest Service Employees for Environmental Ethics (FSEEE) are strongly opposed to this kind of vague laws employed by legislators in salvage logging. In certain instances, the practice has been referred to as "logging without laws" because it exempts timber companies involved in salvage sales from most environmental laws including the Endangered Species Act, the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, the National Forest Management Act, the National Environmental Policy Act, and the Safe Drinking Water Act. It also allows for clearcutting of huge forest areas.
For example, the issue of Global population and how forests are being used, land use and the ways forests contribute, wood use, forest growth, destruction and the reasons for cutting down the trees.

Deforestation is the elimination of existing trees from the earth; attributable factors include urbanization, logging, ranching, and farming and to some extent land speculation. Land speculation can be included as cleared land is more valuable than forested land. Deforestation, done in the name of progress, and the long-term, devastating effects of it, is killing our planet. To understand the effects of deforestation one must understand the reasoning behind the decision to clear forestlands. Only in recent history, have studies been conducted to measure the impact that deforestation has placed upon the Earth.
As previously noted, deforestation directly impacts the climate and wildlife population. Due to these two areas being effected, a chain of events transpires to affect human civilization. For example, consider the basic human need for food. According to Akyena Benjamin in her column Deforestation: A Threat to Human Survival, "the presence of trees help to disperse rainfall over a more even area" (Benjamin). This may not sound like a big deal, but farmers depend on rainfall to grow crops.
On the other hand, environmentalists think using too much forests or natural resources for any demands or commodities will impact native animals and plants life. Animals and plants habitat will be extinct soon if we still do cutting off the trees space in the world. First of all, deforestation is one of the biggest issues in the world. There are many problems as the result of deforestation. First impact is pollution gases, these gases will be affect the atmosphere in the world because trees always absorb carbon dioxide gas which is really benefit for trees (National Geographic, n.d., pp.
