Trees are an important part of every community, and they sustain the whole ecosystem from going out of balance. That means deforestation is a dillemma, and most of it is caused by us.
According to the Pachamama Alliance, 80% of deforestation is caused by agriculture, also known as farm expansions. Other causes include logging, natural causes such as bushfires, and urbanization, which is making space for cities.
