TREES AND PLANTS ARE BEING BURNED, DEGRADED AND LOGGED AT ASTONISHING RATES

EVERY 2 SECONDS MAN DESTROYS AN AREA OF FOREST THE SIZE OF A FOOTBALL FIELD

80% OF THE WORLD'S FORESTS ARE ALREADY DESTROYED.

REMOVING TREES DEPRIVES THE FOREST OF PORTIONS OF ITS CANOPY, WHICH BLOCKS THE SUN’S RAYS DURING THE DAY AND HOLDS IN HEAT AT NIGHT. THIS DISRUPTION LEADS TO MORE EXTREME TEMPERATURES SWINGS THAT CAN BE HARMFUL TO PLANTS AND ANIMALS

THE REMOVAL OF TREES WITHOUT SUFFICIENT REFORESTATION HAS HAD ADVERSE IMPACTS ON BIO-SEQUESTRATION OF ATMOSPHERIC CARBON DIOXIDE, ALONG WITH DAMAGE TO HABITAT, BIODIVERSITY LOSS, AND ARIDITY.

TREES PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN THE WATER CYCLE, GROUNDING THE WATER IN THEIR ROOTS AND RELEASING IT INTO THE ATMOSPHERE. IN THE AMAZON, MORE THAN HALF THE WATER IN THE ECOSYSTEM IS HELD WITHIN THE PLANTS. WITHOUT TREES AND PLANTS, THE CLIMATE MAY BECOME DRYER.

80,000 ACRES OF FORESTS DISAPPEAR FROM THE EARTH EVERY DAY!

ONLY 20% OF FORESTS ARE PROPERLY PROTECTED.
