Just wondering if someone can check this and see if its ok?

Forests cover about 31% of the land on Earth, but, sadly, that number is decreasing at a rapid rate. Deforestation, human-driven and natural loss of trees, is one of the main causes of this depletion. A natural loss of trees might come from a fire, for example, but deforestation done by humans is more common and involves removing trees to make room for something else. This can include clearing the land for farming or using the wood from trees for fuel, construction, or manufacturing. Despite these potential economic benefits, deforestation should be stopped because forests are too important for people, animals, and the environment.
Write three to five sentences explaining how the author develops the key concept in this paragraph.(4 points)

(My answer) Well first the author starts by introducing saying that "Forests cover about 31% of the land on Earth, but, sadly, that number is decreasing at a rapid rate." They then say that "A natural loss of trees might come from a fire, for example, but deforestation done by humans is more common and involves removing trees to make room for something else.” Therefore, starting to develop there point that humans are destroying forests on the earth. Next they say that "This can include clearing the land for farming or using the wood from trees for fuel, construction, or manufacturing." This is the key concept that they were trying to lead up to.
