Not only do the forests provide some people with homes, but also provides a popular setting for ecotourism, which includes hiking, camping, bird watching and other outdoor adventure or nature study activities. All these activities and products the forests provide us are at great risk from deforestation. Not only do forests provide us with all this but also protect soil from erosion and reduces the risks of landslides and avalanches. Trees help sustain freshwater supplies therefore are an important factor in the availability of one of life’s basic needs. Forests affect the climate and are also a very important source of oxygen.
One example of this in the temperate forest is the relationship between a squirrel and a tree, because the tree is not harmed and the squirrel gets protection from predators and shelter. Temperate forests are essential to people as they provide resources that are very useful in our daily lives. Acid rain is main problem to this biome which is caused by us humans. Because of our pollution from our vehicles which harms the leaves of trees, acid rain causes them to yield fewer seeds. However, there are many things that you can do to help sustain life in the temperate forest biome.
Hardwood and softwood), landowners leave several stands of both young and old growth within natural forest stands to enhance the biodiversity and health of the forest site. Normally clearcutting results in the re-planting of tree seedlings, however some species (spruce, pine) overpower the growth of the hardwood trees. This minimizes the level of specie diversity among a timber stand. By allowing these older sections of stands to remain aids to the natural growth and development of hardwood species. Also, the wood debris, a remnant of old forest growth is essential to the survival of many forest species and also acts as a recycler of nutrients back into the soil.
Hoofed browsers often eat their twigs and foliage, but the main attraction to wildlife is the bluish-black berry like fruit it produces. The cedar waxwing is one of the principal users of juniper berries, but other animals make these fruit apart of their diet. Junipers also provide important protective and nesting cover for birds and field mice. Doughlasfirs are commonly found on moist, well-drained mountain slopes and in valleys through out the Rockies and in the Pacific Northwest. The ones found here can often exceed 200 feet in height.
However other plants such as a tree fern are beautiful trees that are not nearly as dangerous as the El Carrasco. Of course, you can’t forget the abiotic factors! Basically, just telling a bit more about the landscape. First, we have the physical features. The landscape of the slope impacts plant growth, hurts natural ecosystems by erosion, and unfortunately destroys the homes of animals.
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.
Foresters help to sustain private and public forests while managing the distribution of standing timber to different companies. I find this occupation very interesting because they manage important resources and protect important habitats. I became interested in this job when I learned about how huge the role forestry has in logging public and private forests. Without forestry to regulate logging companies forests could be stripped bare, and destroyed. Habitats would be ruined, animals would die, climates would change and without the replanting of trees eventually the timber industry would shut down.
I.Attention: Can you imagine a world without trees? It would definitely be a difficult and unwelcoming place to live. II.Audience connection/credibility: It is very important for us to understand that trees do so much for our environment and we need to stop destroying the trees because trees provide a home for many creatures, they are the lungs of our world. Trees have medicinal benefits, that are very useful to the human race. Trees are very beneficial to the world and it is unethical to keep destroying the trees.
The Controversy of Deforestation Environmental issues affect every life on this planet from the smallest parasite to the human race. There are many resources that humans and animal needs to survive; some of the most obvious resources come from the forests. Forests make up a large percentage of the globe. The forests have global implications not just on life but on the quality of it. Trees improve the quality of the air that species breath, determine rainfall and replenish the atmosphere.
Soil Conservation Soil is highly useful to us. We grow plants and trees in it. It holds the trees in place and supply nutrients and water to the plants to grow. The top soil is very healthy for plants to grow, and therefore, farmers take good care of the top soil for better yield. However, a strong wind or heavy rains can easily remove the fertile top soil.
