Cutting down trees or deforestation may have significant effects on the environment and equilibrium of biodiversity and the ecosystem. Cutting down trees not only affects the life of humans as it may also destroy the habitats of many animals living in a forest or park.
Losing trees through either disasters such as bush fires or through deforestation causes many problems for the environment. Trees play a vital role in drawing water up through their roots and releasing moisture.  They also help produce oxygen by taking in carbon dioxide and replacing it with the air we all need to breathe. Cutting down trees would make the environment drier and there would be less oxygen in the atmosphere.
Carbon dioxide has been linked as a contributing factor to rising global temperatures and climate change. If the number of trees absorbing this gas is reduced, there may be more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere which may in turn lead to even higher global temperatures.
Trees also provide animals with natural habitats and food. If smaller animals such as birds and monkeys are unable to escape up a tree when a predator approaches, they may be at risk. Trees also produce fruits and nuts for food consumption for both animals and humans. Animals may starve if other alternative food sources are available and in for humans the price of this food may go up as it becomes more scarce and in demand.
Trees need to be cut down to make way for roads and new houses. We also need to cut them down to produce wood for items such as furniture and other everyday products such as paper. It seems it is a necessary part of life, but by recycling and replanting trees each year we can try to minimise the damage caused.

Cutting down trees can cause soil erosion. This is when there is rainfall but since there is no trees to suck in the water it washes the soil away causing run off's or flash floods. Soil erosion can also make it hard for other plants to grow in that area. Trees also play an affect in global warming, When more trees are cut down there is more c02 left hanging around. Trees are also a main source for a lot of our needs. From paper to fuel woods and timber, losing trees can cause problems for businesses and economic problems to. Animals are losing homes and some times are forced to move into human populated areas since there homes are being taken away.

I think that cutting trees down is bad. Why? Maybe because global warming is getting worst. The world I heating up. Polar bears is dying. So; if people doesnt want to die, then you know what> You're going to die from cutting trees down. Carbon dioxide is what trees breathe in. Since we breathe in oxygen, and trees give us oxygen. Then we wont be able to breathe much oxygen. The whole planet is almost fulled of carbon dioxide. There is one way to stop it. STOP CUTTING TREES DOWN AND START CLEANING UP THE PLANET! THINGS YOU COULD CLEAN HELP: STOP SMOKING,STOP LITTERING AND SERIOUSLY STOOP CUTTING TREES DOESNT AND ALSO STOPP WASTING PAPERS KIDS!

We need trees to live, they give off oxygen and take in carbon dioxide, they provide shade and they are just outright one of Father God's best and most healthy creations.
