Deforestation, in contrast to forest management techniques, involves the large-scale removal of trees and clearing of land for various purposes. This can have detrimental effects:


Common causes of deforestation include agriculture expansion, urban development, and infrastructure projects.

Environmental Impact:

Deforestation can lead to loss of biodiversity, soil erosion, disrupted water cycles, and increased greenhouse gas emissions.

Conservation Efforts:

To counter deforestation, there are efforts to promote reforestation (replanting trees) and afforestation (planting trees in new areas).

In summary, forest management techniques like regulation and selective exploration aim to sustainably use and protect forests, while deforestation involves the widespread removal of trees with significant environmental consequences.
