Trees die on construction sites if the area under their canopy (the limbs and leaves) is injured in some way. Heavy vehicles driving over the roots compact the soil so that air flow and water cannot access the roots as needed. Putting sidewalks or driveways through the root area, cutting and removing roots leaves the tree without some of the support it needs to keep from falling over, not to mention some of its resources. If the bark is scraped or the tree is pruned too aggressively in the wrong season the tree can die.

Many reasons. Extinction is usually (but not always) preceded by a period of decline. The decline could be caused habitat destruction (either by direct human activity or climate change), disease or over hunting.
