A unique nature component, that is called forest, during many centuries forms necessary conditions for existence of everything alive on the Earth. Meanwhile the paradox, that is historically formed, is visible – a man, since in his or her hands had appeared necessary tools, began cutting the branch, where he or she is comfortably settled. At first he or she used fruits from trees and scrubs for food, dry branches - for fire, for heating their homes. Because tha nature has an ability to self-renew, this activity of a man hasn't greately harmed it. As the man moved swiftly to the boundless benefits of civilization, the phase of indiscriminate destruction of surrounding vegetation began, as well as in the plains and in the mountains.
The results of such thriftless activity didn't make to wait for them for a long time. Total pollution of the atmosphere, the shallowness of rivers and lakes, destroying gulley streams, land slides, hurricanes, extinctions of hundreds of plants and animals types – are not the full list of disasters, that are caused by forest destructions. Perhaps Shatobrian was right: "Forests preceeded the human being, – deserts followed him or her".
