The trees are really amazing. They provide shade in the summer, fruit to eat when they’re in season, and lots of homes for little critters to live in. Cutting down trees can be bad or good depending on what you want to use them for.

I think that it’s great if companies want to plant trees so that people can enjoy their beauty and habitat for animals, but sometimes you have to take them down to build houses or other types of buildings. It would actually cost more money not to cut down the trees than it would cost just to pay someone else who knows how to safely remove them without harming anyone or anything else around there.

Some awesome things could happen if they leave them up though! For example, sometimes you can find valuable stuff like gems and metals in the trees’ roots that someone could build an awesome treehouse out of or use to make really cool things! You might even find some valuable items on the ground around them if they’ve fallen recently.

There is a lot of debate over whether it’s bad or good to cut down trees. It all depends on how you look at it, so do what works best for you.

Many people still believe that cutting down trees is bad for the environment even though science proves otherwise. A lot of animals build in these trees so once they are cut down, the animals lose their homes.

If we continue to use wood products at this rate, there won’t be any more forest land by 2060 (Center for International Forestry Research). This means no more paper production, which would hamper economic growth significantly. With this in mind, it becomes clear that we need to cut down trees to provide the necessary materials for our society.

However, a group of environmental activists would tell you otherwise. They claim that if we were to stop cutting down trees and start planting new ones, it wouldn’t be long until there was plenty of forest land again. They say that this change could happen within only 50-100 years (WWF).

We needed wood for many things such as paper and furniture. Moreover, the company wants to cut the forest to make more space for housing which means more humans could live. 

In some cases, if you cut down trees that are too close to your house, this will help keep your house hotter (saves on cooling costs) and safer (prevents tree limbs from falling onto your home).

Another reason why cutting down trees would be good is because there are more natural resources like minerals and oil under these trees. Once they are gone, the world is left with what it has.

Thus, the need to cut down trees. 

In conclusion, both sides have valid concerns about this topic. To decide whether or not cutting down trees is good or bad, you’ll have to weigh all the facts provided before coming up with your own decision.
