What are at least three possible effects of people continuously cutting down trees?
- The trees (or part of them) are burnt or rot, releasing Carbon dioxide (CO2), a powerful greenhouse gas.
- Trees that rot anaerobically (without oxygen) release methane (CH4), a greenhouse gas 21 times more powerful than carbon dioxide.
- The trees no longer remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere (by photosynthesis), so levels of carbon dioxide build up in the atmosphere. This is contributing to global warming and climate change.
- Animals and birds lose their habitats. This is particularly serious for animals like pandas and koalas that have a special diet.

Animals that are adapated in the wild can lose their homes. More and more Co2 will be emitted into air.
People can be annoyed by the sounds. Also, it damages the landscape and makes erosion happen faster. Plants produce oxygen as a waste product, but we need oxygen. If we cut do…wn the trees we will take our oxygen supply away.
Trees absorb CO2 so there will be more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere which will contribute to global warming. It will also kill animals as trees are a natural habitat for m…any animals. If you cut down trees then you have less oxygen producers. If you take out the stumps then you can cause a mud slide. Cutting trees will lead to less rain on earth and increase the temperature of the earth thus leading to the melting of ice and decreasing the land. Cutting down trees (and not replanting them) will effect humans as well as animals, the ecosystem, and the climate because: a) trees happen to be a GREAT source of oxygen b) think about how may animals live in trees...or use their fruits as food c) trees happen to have many advantages to them...but they provide LOTS of shade from the sun's harmful uva rays (hint: sunscreen) d) they maintain ecosystems
because they wanted to make money and have a warm fire aswell
This results in dwindling flora and fauna populations which break down the balance of the food chain. Habitat fragmentation is just detrimental aspect of kaingin.
One negative effect is that deforestation, cutting down trees, is a major cause of global warming and climate change, as growing trees and vegetation is the only way to… remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. One positive effect is that you can build homes or have crops.
Trees in the rainforest are being cut to market the lumber and to clear the land. Those are the two primary reasons. This activity destroys the ecosystem; it transorms into so…mething else. The largest portion of the animals and the plants that lived there and made up that complex web of life will be displaced or simply vanish. To make furniture, cabinets, paper, and anything else that wood makes. It is a cheap and (at the moment) readily available source. People cut down trees to grow crops and for land development. Trees help us have homes, paper, desks, pencils, and more. But you shouldn't cut down too many because trees also do good things to our environment. They give us oxygen to breathe and they remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, reducing the threat of global warming. Here are some estimated numbers: You need about 8 trees per person There are about 7 Billion people in the world We need about 56 billion trees to survive There are around 5 trillion trees about 5 billion are cut down every year around 3.4 billion are planted every year Just looking at these numbers you can see that sooner or later we will run out of trees. Also these numbers are only for humans to survive, think about all of the other animals in the world. There are also plenty of fires that can burn up oxygen too.
because people need somewhere to liveand because they would like to build farms there....
cutting down trees lowers the amount of oxygen in the atmosphere and makes soil errosion slower
Tree rootsYes. Plants don't have brains, so death occurs differently for them. We cut a tree down and the plant will continue until the available food is used up, one of the r…easons we can have cut flower arraingements. Some trees actually possess the ability to germinate new saplings once the main trunk is cut or dies. Not all trees regrow. Most conifers roots will die if cut down. Only trees with growth buds left on the stump will regrow.
Cutting down trees has a catastrophic effect on rainfall. The less trees there are in a given area, the less rainfall there is. tree roots hold the soil together and s…top erosion. in the water cycle, rain falls from the sky and is intercepted by trees and buildings. water vapour the has to evaporate from the leaves of trees into the air by a process called transpiration. if there are no trees, there will be less transpiration and in turn, probably less rainfall.
Professionals who cut down trees are called loggers. These are the people who chop wood for timber. Other people include tree-trimming experts who trim the trees by cutting pa…rts of it. Some are just ordinary people who chop down trees in their backyard because it is falling.
