Deforestation Have Become a Lifestyle

People in Pakistan are often seen complaining about pollution, lack of greenery, extreme weather conditions, etc. All these weather conditions are directly linked to the deforestation occurred in Pakistan, especially in its major cities like Karachi. It may surprise you that deforestation rate in Pakistan is highest in the world. After the 1960s, deforestation occurred in this country at a very rapid rate. In such crucial times, it is highly needed that government restores forestation, which prevailed in the 1960s.

When the issue of deforestation is studied in depth, there are various other factors, which are highlighted at government’s end that support deforestation. One of the most significant reasons is the allocation of low budgets to provincial governments. On the other hand, it is also reasoned that every government seems least interested in reforesting the land. Although if reforestation occurs at the same pace by which government plans deforestation, consequences of harmful weather impacts can be controlled to a great extent.

Unfortunately, most of the business-minded people in big cities want the forested land to be clear for more developmental business projects. Although business projects are for people only, removing high quantities of trees from cities will make it more difficult for people to live.

It is high time that government and all the other private entities should play their role in making people realize the importance of forests. Young minds should be trained to cultivate more trees rather than cutting them off by institutions and organizations. Businesses should also go greener.
