    For one thing, a tree might fall on you and it would take ages for help to arrive. And while you are pinned under the tree, leeches would suck your blood, ticks with Lyme disease could crawl on you and infect you. Then you would need to go to the USA for treatment because there's none in Australia.

    Deforestation can have a negative impact on the environment. The most dramatic impact is a loss of habitat for millions of species. Eighty percent of Earth's land animals and plants live in forests, and many cannot survive the deforestation that destroys their homes. Deforestation also drives climate change.

    Logging is physically demanding and can be dangerous, with logging consistently listed as the most dangerous job in America. Workers risk serious injury not only from falling out of trees but also because they often work in locations far away from hospitals.

    The best solution to deforestation is to curb the felling of trees, by employing a series of rules and laws to govern it. Clear-cutting of forests must be banned. This will curb the total depletion of the forest cover. It is a practical solution and is very feasible. Also, the cutting must be replaced by planting young trees to replace the older ones that were cut.
