Deforestation is large-scale cutting of trees from a forested area, leaving bare areas susceptible to erosion. Today large-scale commercial enterprises such as logging, soybean and industrial cattle farming most often are the cause of deforestation, there are no plans ahead for other renewable businesses after large eras cleaned.
Industrial deforestation happens where the profit is the highest, in fragile biosystems as in the tropic’s subsistence rainforest; the damage of these operations is not reversible. Deforestation leads to risk for global warming as carbon dioxide releases in the atmosphere, flooding, soil erosion, drought and biodiversity loss.
