They also cut trees for firewood and to make space for cities. It can also be done for road building and  mining activities

Forests play a major role in our life and it helps to  prevent soil erosion and floods.Trees help to regulate the climate of a place. and for oxygen .Some trees, such as coconuts and palms, help to break strong winds in coastal areas. .So instead of cutting down trees and reducing the forest area we should plant more trees to save the ecosystem.

Deforestation refers to cutting down of forest areas to a large extent. Deforestation occurs to expand the land areas for the purpose of agricultural land, industrial areas, roads, human habitation, and more. If deforestation is limited, it doesn't affect the environment much. But if it crosses the limit, it greatly causes environmental imbalance. Presently, deforestation has become a big environmental problem. Due to deforestation wild animals are losing their natural habitats. Many animals and birds have become extinct. Environmental problems, such as drought, air pollution, lack of oxygen, soil pollution are caused by deforestation to some extent.
