  • Countries have to provide alternatives for poor farmers who are cutting into the rainforest to make room for food crops.
  • Countries have to pass laws outlawing logging. Oh, hang on, most of them have!
  • Countries have to strictly enforce their anti-logging laws. Money and cronyism should not provide immunity.
  • Education programs must reduce the demand for furniture made from rainforest timbers.
  • Recycle old furniture and wood.
  • Illegal logging is an eminent threat to nature, and causes floods and soil erosion.
  • Illegal logging should be controlled by the government authorities by concentrating on forest regions and taking appropriate actions against timber mafia.
  • You have to identify the company that is doing the illegal logging. Then you have to contact the authorities that have the jurisdiction to enforce the laws. Sometimes those are state authorities and sometimes those are federal authorities.
  • Building fences around forests are sometimes a solution for illegal logging.
  • Educating the public on what to look for is also a way you can cut down on illegal logging.

my opinions about illegal logging are : illegal logging is dangerous because if we can't stop illegal logging it will bring many calamities like landslides and floods. it can also damage our mountains. if we can't stop illegal logging we can't feel the fresh air that can only be produced by the trees.
