Effects of Illegal Logging

As we know human need air to live without air we can not breathe, so it is important for us to keep our forests. environmental problems arise as a result of human activity itself, utilization of natural resources that exceed the threshold carrying capacity of land and without regard to the aspects of sustainability will be bad for the environment. Based on the data that I quoted from the internet, Indonesia has a total forest area of about 126.8 Million Hectares From Sabang to marauke, and ​​126.8 million hectares is expected to accommodate the lives of all Indonesian citizens, amounting to 46 million people. llegal Logging according to Law No. 41/1999 on Forestry was a violation of law committed by any person or group of persons or legal entities in the field of forestry and trade of forest products; cut or collect wood forest products (HHK) of forest land without permission, receiving or buy HHK allegedly illegally collected, as well as transport or have HHK without a Certificate of Legal Forest Products (SKSHH).

The causes of illegal logging is illegal for both timber and land conversion to other uses, such as plantations, agriculture and settlement. Over time population increases day by day more and more rapidly, causing the pressure of needing a place to live, the trees be felled to clear land for residential or agricultural.

Other factors are the factors of poverty and employment factors. Generally this happens to the people who live near or in the woods. Amid the difficulty of competition in the world of work and will crush the economy, society would not want to work as loggers and from this community can sustain its life. This is sometimes exploited by financiers like-financiers to exploit the forest without a permit from the authorities. In fact, when seen this wage is nothing compared to the consequences will be felt later.
