Land purchase[ edit ] One simple type of forest protection is the purchasing of land in order to secure it, or in order to plant trees afforestation. It can also mean forest management or the designation of areas such as natural reservoirs which are intended to be left to themselves.
This is rightly so, and today, we shall look at how wonderful our forests have been to us, and why we should immediately stop its' destruction. There is more to forests than just a massive collection of trees.
It is a natural, complex ecosystem, made up of a wide variety of trees, that support a massive range of life forms. Quiet apart from trees, forests also include the soils that support the trees, the water bodies that run through them and even the atmosphere air around them.
Forests of the world are a natural wonder that humans have sadly taken for granted. Forests come in many sizes and forms. For example, the piece of land with huge trees and many animals, birds and water bodies running through it in a part of Kenya can be called a forest.
In the same way, the large belt of thick, evergreen trees running from Peru to Brazil called the Amazon Rain Forest is also a forest.
A good example is the Amazon Rain Forest. It is estimated that two-thirds of the world's forest is currently distributed among 10 countries: Forests are hugely important for life on earth.
This is because it serves as an ecosystem, and sustains life for millions of animals, birds and animals that live in the rivers and streams running through these forests. It also does a lot of good to the atmosphere in climate control, as well as supplying oxygen for human sustenance.
In the next pages, we shall look at the types and importance of forests, the problem of deforestation and its effects, as well as what we can do minimise the consequences.Forest preservation Human intervention alters the natural replenishing cycles of the forest and its structure and composition in terms of species.
Although the forest surface has increased during the 20th century, natural forests have shrunk. Conservation versus Preservation?

Forest protection is the preservation or improvement of a forest threatened or affected by natural or man made causes This forest protection also has a legal status and rather than protection from only people damaging the forests is seen to be broader and include forest pathology too.
Introduction to forest preservation Environmental activists consider forests as one of the top 5 natural resources on earth.
This is rightly so, and today, we shall look at how wonderful our forests are to us, and why we should immediately stop its' destruction.
Forest Home Preservation, in cooperation with cemetery leadership, supports the protection of the cemetery in both its historical significance and the continuing development of it to meet the needs of the greater Milwaukee community. During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, forest preservation programs were established in British India, the United States, and Europe.
In Spain, the first forestry school was the Forest Engineering School of Madrid (Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieros de Montes), founded in
