The Earth’s Forests Are Under Assault

The Earth’s forests are under assault on a tremendous scale with approximately 30,000 SQUARE MILES (thirty thousand) disappearing each year. (An area almost the size of South Carolina gone each year).

It is estimated that all the Earth’s rain forests could be gone within 100 years at the current rate of deforestation resulting in habitat loss for millions of species.

Unmanaged deforestation:

  • Threatens the survival of millions of animal and plant species
  • Destroys rare species that may contain answers for cures to serious diseases
  • Threatens climate stability
  • Contributes to global warming and green house gas emission.
  • Leads to desert lands that emerge from cleared forests
  • Leads to soil erosion, landslides and flooding threatening communities and the lives of people near deforested regions
  • Threatens humanity in countless ways including food supply, water supply, and disease.

The solution is a systematic effort of RE-Forestation. That means replacing what is being taken away. 100,000 Trees For Humanity is our initiative to help replace what is being taken away.
