cutting!

What are industries and governments doing to prevent the negative effects of clear-cutting?


Clear-cutting removes all of the trees in an area. Many animals and other plants lose their habitat.

Planting young trees eventually provides more trees, but since it takes years for them to grow to maturity, this is only a partial solution. There will always be some negative effects from clear-cutting, especially the loss of habitat for several years.
