We don't like deforestation but it's happening right now and it's choking mother earth.

If forests are cut in patches or alternate strips or in a leave one, cut one manner then it is obvious that trees will cover that area back sooner than otherwise. It may also maintain the biodiversity of those areas. Research must be done to find out which method is the best.

Please tell this to any forest officials u know.

Conventional tree harvesting is selective, of course.

But even after clear cutting, deforestation and loss of top soil from farming, the forest can be fairly quickly replaced by spreading the manure of the small forest animals who ingest the seeds but will not venture out into the cleared land.
