Defend the trees from deforestation

My idea is to defend trees from deforestation because many trees are ancient and irreplaceable, we can't allow trees to be cut down because trees are carbon sinks, deforestation contributes to climate change because trees store co2, provide oxygen, and regulate temperatures andif they're cut down it will lead to a loss of clean water, oxygen, food, habitat, and a rise of carbon emissions, I hope that the government takes action and that our politicians don't betray the people.

Why the contribution is important

Because without trees there's no habitats, no clean air, no oxygen, no cooling of temperatures, and no future for mankind.

    Scotlands native woodlands either broad leaved or Caledonian Pinewoods make up only a small percentage of Scotlands land cover and are our rainforests.

    So much still to be done to ensure their health and wellbeing.

    I think this is important because we have seen an upsurge in support for planting new trees, but not for protecting the trees that already exist. Trees will only store carbon so long as we actually protect them (or make them into long-lived timber products).
