Puttingoff all deforestation isn’t always viable. Area of the Earth’s land will have tobe reshaped and changed as populations develop and change. However, this can bebalanced via appropriate organisation, reforestation application and conservingthe integrity of covered regions. Looking at the rate at which deforestation isoccurring today, nil deforestation activity seems to be impossible to achieve. Afew countries are actually already putting in efforts to overcome thedeforestation issue and some of thesecountries have seen success along this progress. Paraguay, for instance, managedto decrease the deforestation rate of their country by 85% within years just followingthe approval of its 2004 Zero Deforestation Law.
Taking Paraguay as an example,other nations of this planet should also come together and take the initiativeto make Earth better place, since theeffects of deforestation will ruin mankind one day or another.Firstof all, as we take down trees, we must also plant them back. This is calledreforestation. Reforestation is the restoration of plant, herbs and trees thatwill later grow into forests, in order to replenish the forests that have beenlost due to deforestation. Although reforestation does not bring obviouschanges in a short period of time, but this method is certainly one of the bestin the long run. It entails dedicating a huge piece of land specifically toplant more trees.
As an example, in local communities and urban facilities,reforestation can be done across market areas, in wildlife reserves or withinparks in the town. This method is assumed to be the best because as the number oftrees increases, the global temperature can be brought down, amount of carboncirculating in the atmosphere can be reduced and effects of deforestation canbe brought to a lower percentage. A similar method, called community forestry,can also help in counterattacking deforestation. Community forestry is where groups,agencies and faculties work together to begin localizing tree plantingactivities and control of their nearby forests. On events which includes publicholidays, launching ceremonies and on environment days, local residents can raiseawareness about deforestation and reforestation and also emphasise on the needto plant more trees.
