A forest is an wholly dependent society in itself. It does not require any supply from outside. The varied animal and plant life in the forest can never be artificially created. Most forests are very sensitive to outside intervention too. It is very sophisticated. The plants and animals in this environment are dependent on one another for the perfect unison of the eco-system. Humans are the greatest threat to the forests in the world. Even when we depend on the plant kingdom of the forest for the regular supply of fresh water and fresh air, we fail to recognise the use of the forest and destroying it for the temporary gain of the present living. There are not much forest left in the world. And it is our duty to the posterity that no more forests are destroyed.
