Unfortunately, mankind has been cutting down forests without thinking that what they mean to us or what they mean to the animals. This has resulted in a very bad manner. Considerable decrease in rainfall in some places has occurred, and floods in others. The world temperatures are rising because of the decrease in the tree cover. Here is an example, it is said that back in the time, Rajasthan was not the desert it is today. Rajasthan has become a desert because of the cutting down of tree cover. Humans have just begun to realize the importance of plants. Plants are like the lungs of the world, and without them, all living things are bound to finish completely. The only way we can save these faithful and wonderful friends is by creating awareness amongst people of the world of importance of the plants. Children should be taught the importance of plants from a very young age. Forest land should be protected. For every one tree that we cut, we should grow at least two more plants.
