Stop the Chop

“People who will not sustain trees will soon live a world that will not sustain people” Bryce Nelson

Why we cut the trees?

Answer depends on your ideology, whether you are for or against Trees survival.

I can give you a broad idea since I am not an expert.

Whether what we do is correct or not you have to decide.

Whether we are greedy or needy, you have to decide

  • Wood is an important fuel in most of the countries
  • Wood is the raw material for lumber, furniture and plywood
  • Pulp, paper and many chemical products are derived from wood
  • Trees are cut for developing the lands, for expanding the town, starting the industries, for widening the roads for interconnectivity etc.
  • Sometimes trees are cut to control diseases, pest insects and sometimes when we found the tree is too weak and can pose danger to the lives.
  • In some homes trees are cut to get better Sunlight or to have a better view of outside world from inside

Now there are plans to connect whole world (at least Eurasia) via road.

Eurasia consists of 93 countries. 

You must have heard of DEFORESTATION

Deforestation is permanent removal of trees.

It’s done for getting agricultural lands, urbanisation or mining activities.

“Forests are the lungs of our land” Franklin D Roosevelt

But who is listening?

 Please share your thoughts.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

    very good awareness post and hopefully tree farms will help with some of the deforestation – but we do need to be more aware – because without enough trees we all will suffer grave consequences

      Thank you my friend.
      I agree about awareness.
      Yes.we are aware but helpless.
      In schools, deforestation and it’s destructive effect on humanity and environment is taught fortunately.
      Action is the need of the hour.

        well I do not have any links – but did here recently about some new growth in some rainforest areas – and some measures are being done to protect the oceans and all that – so not totally helpless – but whew – truly an area the world needs to find some common ground to “connect and protect” without the fighting over theories and whatnot

    I think deforestation is a grave warning to the humanity. There should be a balance between cutting trees out of necessity and destroying ecology out of greed.

      Thank you Dolly.
      Nice to hear from you.

      It’s impossible to balance between necessity and greed

      By nature, greed takes over everything.

      My doubt is who decides how much to cut and how much to leave untouched.

        I suspect that people in power make decision, and those are people moved mostly by greed, no matter what they publicly proclaim.

    You are so right to raise this for debate 0- far too many trees disappearing in my view. We need far more not less in this world
