Other Causes - Deforestation

Natural enemies like termites, pests and several kinds of diseases affect the forests adversely. There is also massive destruction of forests because of floods and fires. Some forest fires are not natural, but they are due to deliberate burning of trees by smugglers. Defence activities like preparing ditches and bunkers, movement of heavy armoury and their testing and use, also affects the ecosystem considerably.
