Destroying of The Amazon Rain Forest

Waterfalls

 There are many renewable resources that are being depleting. We are using more than we can put back in the manhandled world. Trees for example are being cut down, and in this state there is a law that you must plant a tree for every tree you cut down. This is a great law, but it takes many years for a tree to grow. In the Amazon we are cutting trees down at an alarming rate. Another problem with cutting down trees is that we are clear-cutting, a technique where logging companies or contractors for neighborhoods cut down every tree. Often down have enough room to plant the trees they have chopped down for the neighborhoods. Sustainable forestry is a way better alternative to clear-cutting. In this method certain trees a targeted for cutting. Cutting some trees while leaving others untouched. This leaves the economical system to preserve old growth.
