Forests are one of the most essential natural resources that the creator gave to mankind for the sustainability of the universe. Forests provide human beings with various forms of benefits; cooling air temperature through release of water vapour into the atmosphere, purification of air through intake of carbon dioxide during the day and sustainability of the water bodies, prevention of soil erosion by minimizing soil runoff after heavy rains, keeping the environment beautiful and healthy by recycling the waste products in the air. Without these benefits, the human race and the wild animals around the planet would face the risk of extinction. Since civilization of human beings, forests and humans have been intimately connected through the influence of human way of living. Intimate relations of humans and forests have been enlivening and refreshing.
In the modern world, forests are in danger of extinction as well as the human race and the wildlife. Forest provide the basic needs for human survival; clean oxygen, medicines, food that we eat and homes for the wildlife. Deforestation due to human activities in search of industrial raw materials, for example; cutting down trees for logs used in paper industries and timber for construction purposes, these acts are depleting the forests cover at a rapid way. Human population is growing fast, and this has created the need for more land for settlements and more land space for agricultural purposes to feed the growing nations. These factors mentioned above are the greatest contributors to deforestation. For the sustenance of ecological balance, forests need to be conserved. Conservation of the forests reserves is a matter that needs to be addressed as anteriority. It is the duty of government to enact Legislations, which will ultimately work towards sustainability of the forest and at the same time meet the growing demands of human beings.
