To comprehend fully the benefits of afforestation and reforestation, one must first entirely understand the extent to which the deforestation is harming the global population, Earth’s soils and biodiversity, while pushing the Global Climate Change into the irreversible direction of Global Warming.



The Earths land mass has a forest cover that is approximately 30% of mainland. On this 30% land covered by forest, deforestation that occurs annually by United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organization (UN FAO) is around 13 million hectares per year, which is nearly the size of Greece. We have already lost 3% of Earths forest cover due to deforestation. Even though small percentage, when seen in kilometers square as 1 350 000 km², which is like the size of Italy and Egypt put together, its significance rises instantly and knowing that the old-growth natural forest does not only store carbon dioxide in its biomass, dead wood, litter but in its soil as well, the importance of its preservation elevates instantly. Knowing all this, it could be presumed that the relisted carbon dioxide from deforestation is great, and it is observed that the total amount of deforestation throughout the world contributes to 20% of global carbon dioxide emissions, which is more than total EU greenhouse gas emissions.... read more : http://afforest4future.com/introduction-to-deforestation-forestation-afforestation-and-reforestation/
