People should stop cutting down trees because without trees, the earth would become a polluted wasteland. I’ve been to a small city with no trees around. There was a huge power plant in the distance, and a grey, cloudy sky. There was trash all over the ground, and the sound of police sirens in the distance. It was a place I never want to go back to. Another example is that trees add a little bit of color to the world. The small city with no trees, was 0% green. This might not be true, but it could be that most people throw recyclable materials into trash cans. More trash means more dumps, and more dumps mean more trees that have to be cleared away to make them.
Another example of why I think people should stop cutting down trees is because those trees could be home for wildlife. Once, when I was hiking in the woods, I found a bird’s nest on the ground right next to a fallen tree. This is important because, some birds provide food, yet if their home is destroyed; try imagining Thanksgiving without turkey for dinner. Also, some animals eat animals that annoy us like bats eating mosquitoes. This is important because I don’t think anyone on earth would want to be ambushed by ten thousand mosquitoes. Finally, there are the bushy tailed tree climbers, the squirrels. The squirrels dig small holes so they can bury acorns to dig up for food in the winter. If the squirrels forget to dig up some of the acorns he buried, the acorns will grow into oak trees. This is important because the tree population won’t decline, it will increase because of the squirrel’s gardening skills.
Finally, I think people should stop cutting down trees because we need trees to make oxygen for us to survive. The scientific term for plants creating oxygen is called photosynthesis. It would be even worse if people smoke and cut down a tree at the same time because one, the tree wouldn’t be able to produce oxygen anymore, two, the smoke will pollute the air, three, there is a huge chance that of a forest fire. One time, my friend Almir heard a news story about a man who caused a forest fire because he was smoking while cutting down a tree. Pretty much, no trees means no oxygen, and no oxygen means no life on earth. I used to think that you could breathe in any type of gas, but now I know that the only gas that is healthy to breathe in is oxygen.
Now you see why people should stop cutting down trees, because the world would be a wasteland, animal’s homes will be destroyed, and trees make oxygen so we can breathe; so before you go cut down a tree, think about what you are going to do.
