Afforestation means to plant new trees
Afforestation is the process of planting the land with trees to build a forest. overcrowding and deforestation are causing significant environmental degradation. People move to the forest and cut down trees for farming and settlement. Overpopulation is a major cause of deforestation. Everyone has accepted it.
Much of our forest is seriously damaged. There is a saying that the wealth of each country is in the forests. Green forest means the presence of natural resources that is better for all living species. There is no official data on how much forest is left in the world now because every minute of the trees was cut down because the whole country is facing floods, landslides, starvation, soil erosion, famine, drought, etc. The high hills with fewer trees cause landslides and people being killed and much property will be destroyed.
The afforestation is the needs of the time. It is the best solution to many problems by climate change. If we keep our environment and nature system good for a long time means saving future generations. But if we can’t then people are aware of the effects of deforestation. So, We have to plant new trees we called afforestation.
Human role in Afforestation
Human is the intelligent being on the planet earth. Intelligence is the power of human beings. All other species on the planet earth do not know the importance of trees for living and surviving on this beautiful earth. We know in terms of misusing and cutting down trees are only done by the human because other species are far from the universe intelligence.
We are the only human of causing all haphazard and degradations of the environment because of our wants and desires. Every year the environment is getting worse because of cutting more trees and lacking in the planting trees. We only focus on taking from nature but we lack in giving back to nature in terms of planting trees(afforestation), and other things that are beneficial to nature. So, it’s the human role to protect the forest and nature from vanishing or degradation. Human role in saving the forest is great responsibilities for us because there is saying ” With great power comes great responsibilities”
