Clear cutting affects the environment badly, there is no doubt. It affects animals, plants, air pollution, the waster cycle, flooding, soil erosion, climate, global warming and even humans.
Clear-cutting helps to control, harmful insects, forest fires, invasive species and keeps the native trees and plants healthy. Clear cutting also makes logging a lot faster because it takes down everything and then is replanted by law. We do not only log and clear cut to get lumber but also do it FOR the environment. Clear cutting is a controlled and carefully planned procedure.
