Basic Reasons of Deforestation in India!
Agriculture: Due to overgrowing demand for food products, huge amount of tress are fell down to grow crops and for cattle gazing. Farmers that practice slash and burn.
Commercial Logging: Cutting of trees for fire wood and building material.
Overgrazing: Plants are exposed to intensive grazing for extended periods of time, or without sufficient recovery periods. It is being caused by livestock.
Increase in Population: To meet the demands of rapidly growing population, agricultural lands and settlements are created permanently by clearing forests.
Urbanization and Industrialization: The construction of roads are undertaken, here again trees are chopped to create roads. Overpopulation too directly affects forest covers, as with the expansion of cities more land is needed to establish housing and settlements.
Mining: Forest logging is done in the area of mines to increase the available room for the storage of soil. It causes environmental impacts like erosion, loss of biodiversity, contamination of soil, groundwater and surface water by chemicals from mining processes.
These trees are used for cooking food and other daily needs which require fuel .
