Deforestation. What is it?

You have probably heard of the word ‘deforestation’ before. But do you know exactly what it means?


Deforestation is basically when forests and woodlands are destroyed. They are often destroyed by being cut down because of our need to use wood. But many people can get confused on which type of knocking down trees is deforestation. Deforestation only means the destruction of indigenous forests and wood lands, or forests and woodlands that are not plantations or industrial forests etc.
