Forests: Our Lifeline


Why should we worry about the conditions and issues related to forests far from us?


Forest is a very important resource. We worry about the conditions and issues related to forests. The forest protects us from flood and soil erosion. It provides the habitat for different types of species of plants and animals. The cutting of forests can destroy the habitat of different species of plants and animals. It provides us with a large number of useful products like wood, timber, medicines, fruits, etc. It serves as green lungs and water purifying systems in nature. It also acts as a purifier of water because tress in the forest absorb water from the soil (impure) through their roots and release it into the air by the process of transpiration which increases the amount of water vapor in the air, helps in cloud formation and rainfall (pure water).
