A Deforest ation is Those practices or processes that result in the change of forested lands to non-forest uses. This is often cited as one of the major causes of the greenhouse effect for two reasons: 1) the burning or decomposition of the wood releases carbon dioxide; and 2) trees that once removed carbon dioxide from the atmosphere in the process of photosynthesis are no longer present and contributing to carbon storage.
