Forests are very important for not only for sustaining human life but also all the species that live in them. As more and more trees and forests are cut down it will continue contributing to the extinction of certain species, but this isn't the only consequence. The atmosphere will also be affected, green house gasses that should be absorbed by the trees are rising and causing global warming. Another effect is flooding, water is used by trees too live, if no trees are present to absorb water, it will collect and cause flooding in those areas, and this will ultimately contribute to soil erosion. These consequences are very serious and it does not help that about half the earths forests have been depleted.
