Reforestation is the natural or intentional replanting of the existing forests that have been destroyed through deforestation. Reforestation may sound similar to afforestation but both of them are not same. Reforestation is replanting of trees in a land area which had lost its forest cover for some reason. But afforestation is growing forest in an area which originally had no tree cover. Reforestation is an effective strategy to fight global warming. In addition to benefiting the climate, reforestation helps in protecting important species of animals. Reforestation helps to rebuild habitat loss and degradation which are the leading threats to the health and endangerment of species.
Observe the important days related to conservation of nature. Also organise a ralley on protecting forest.
Importance of Reforestation
Both afforestation and reforestation are important for protecting the habitat, increasing the supply of forest products,finding solution to climate changes and for many other reasons. Importance of reforestation is given below.
* Reforestation improves the quality of air we breathe by reducing carbon dioxide in it.
* The effects of deforestation can be checked and global warming can be reduced.
* Reforestation restores habitat loss, degradation and removes the threats to species.
* Forest restoration can reverse the damage done by soil erosion. Reforestation will revive the watersheds which are important aspects of environmental well-being.
* Reforestation maintains the water cycle of the area as trees absorb moisture through the leaves and roots.
* Transpiration of trees helps to restore the moisture of the atmosphere and to maintain the temperature in the local environment.
