Rate this:
Since humans first appeared on the earth, we've been cutting down trees for fuel and shelter. Indeed, the thinning, changing and wholesale clearing of forests are among the most important ways humans have transformed the global environment. With the onset of industrialization and colonization the process has accelerated, as agriculture, metal smelting, trade, war, territorial expansion, and even cultural aversion to forests have all taken their toll.
