Well, forestry is really secondary in the massive deforestation of the Amazon biome, and is virtiually none is the Cerrado.

About 70% of deforestation is cause by clearing for cattle ranching, and about 25% is provoqued by clearing for soja farming.

the way it works out in the Amazon is that forestry is the first change , cattle, then soy

Seven and a half billion and rising need to be fed so more and more virgin land will be turned to agriculture. Some multinationals will obviously take advantage of the situation since greed rules the world.


What pays stays.

@COSMIC RHINO

 

I insist, I once thought deforestation's main driver was forestry, but the truth is very different.

They make space literally burning the forest combined with bulldozers, without taking out timber.

Same problem occurred during the colonization of Patagonia, now native forests are replaced by rapid growth invasive species.

This all is a sorry mess driven by pure greed

 

the fertility of the land is in the vegetation, so burning it is not the way to go 

 

it is all a heedy mix  of corruption and short term greed
