Abstract : Deforestation is the purposeful or regular clearing of woodlands on a gigantic scale, frequently bringing about harm to the nature of the land and antagonistic ecological impacts. This review paper provides brief overview about different causes of deforestation and its ecological impacts on environment. Tropical forests are vanishing at a very faster rate in the developing countries. Major causes of deforestation in the developing countries are expanded agriculture, urbanization, population pressure, dependence on fuel wood, wild fires, and lack of management at government level. All this lead to have drastic impact on environment including erosion of soil, decrease in biodiversity, habitat loss and economic loss. The possible solution of deforestation is to stop cutting trees at minimum level, artificial forestation should be enhanced to decrease the level of deforestation. Also the government should take action against illegal degradation of forests. Recycling of paper waste should be enhanced to save the trees.
Keywords : causes of deforestation, tropical forests, perspectives, environmental effects, recycling.
