Don't cut down trees for a new home or for yet more agricultural land to feed yet more animals for meat, or for palm oil plantations. Your daily choices (what you buy) affect what happens to trees.

Terão relação direta com escassez de alimentos em futuro não distante, profundo desequilíbrio do sistema produtivo, se praticas corretas não forem adotadas. Manejo inadequado reduz significativamente potencial de produção. Renovação, aprimoramento das técnicas produtivas e redução de desperdícios são fundamentais.

Deforestation Facts, Deforestation Information, Effects of Deforestation

"Deforestation also drives climate change. Forest soils are moist, but without protection from sun-blocking tree cover they quickly dry out. Trees also help perpetuate the water cycle by returning water vapor back into the atmosphere. Removing trees deprives the forest of portions of its canopy, which blocks the sun’s rays during the day and holds in heat at night. This disruption leads to more extreme temperatures swings."
