Cutting down forest is a environmental threat, yet, this is still happening at a great rate around the world. Why do you think forests are being destroyed? Are there any benefit from the destruction of forests

Deforestation is one of the major human activities that has posed more danger in our environment and
this
has been on an increase globally. In
this
essay, I'm going to discuss two major reasons why it happens and it's benefits.
Firstly
, trees are being cut down for commercial purposes. They are major raw material for manufacturing furniture, produce paper and for making cooking utensils. When the trees are cut, they pass through several processes and sold in exchange of money, goods and services.
For example
, 4.2% of the internally generated revenues in Nigeria are from wood exports. Again,
infrastructural
development is another reason for forest destruction. Countries around the globe are guided by their master plan (the map) which gives clarity as to where roads are to be constructed, industry establishment, building of schools and hospitals, construction of railways and setting up recreational parks. Most times, the map suggests forest locations for these infrastructures.
For example
