Forests provide us with wood. But the most important part is that forests control rain, flood, soil erosion and of course the wild life which are extremely important for ecological balance of nature. The release of oxygen would not have been possible had there been no trees.
Forest conservation is the biggest necessity today as the entire nation has been gripped by pollution which is a result of cutting down of trees for space. Plant a tree before you cut down one should be the thought in every body’s mind. Trees also provide shelter to many birds and they are the home for monkeys, too, who have started rushing to cities for want of food and shelter.
