Consequences of Deforestation

- The carbon cylce becomes altered- This makes the trees release more carbon turning into C02 which causes the Green house effect.

- The water cycle gets altered. This makes the trees release it into the atmosphere and the climate will become drier.

- Soil Erosion= This results in a loss of soil.

- The region becomes a desert.
