Who cuts down rainforests and why?
People who cut down rainforests are mostly loggers and construction workers. Loggers, as the name suggests, sell timber for a living. Thus, they have to cut down trees from the rainforest to support their business. Construction workers cut down rainforests to clear land for construction of buildings.
