Deforestation is the result of clearing a wide area of trees.
A common method for deforestation is burning the trees down.
A short term effects of deforestation on humans is that when you cut down a tree you will lose out on cleaner air. Even if you were to plant a tree right away, it would take a few years for it to grow back.
Some effects that it has on humans is that some trees takes in greenhouse gasses that fuel global warming. Without those trees it could help cause global warming. This is a long term effect.
A long term effect for deforestation is loss of species. Sometimes when you lose a species it can take a long time for it to grow again or it might never grow again. If a specie if alone in the forest how will it find the same specie before it dies or gets killed. That is a long term effect because it can take a long time for a species to grow back once it has been almost extinct.
Some effects that deforestation has on the environment is that there is 80% of the earth's land animals and plants live in forests. Many can't survive the deforestation that will destroy their homes. That was a short term effect.
As you can see with this deforestation it will effect many humans and creatures. Thank you for reading this very important message about deforestation because it is importnat
