CHAPTER I
I .INTRODUCTION
Logging, a very important issue today’s environmental problems. Logging is the cutting and separation of new and old tress. Without it our forests would be too condensed and would be nothing made of wood. Logging is a very good thing, but it can be very bad. One of loggings biggest enemies is clear cutting. That is the worst thing that can be done in the logging industry. Clear cutting is when loggers cut every tree in a certain area. By doing this they cut down young and old trees which take longer to grow back. Logging should be when loggers cut down the older trees to make room for the new young trees. This rarely happens but when it does it is devastating. Another is illegal logging. Illegal logging is a pervasive problem throughout the world, affecting countries that produced, export, and import wood and wood products. Illegal logging is generally defined as the harvest, transport, purchase, or sale of timber in violation of national laws. Illegal logging may ultimate corruption, collusion and other crimes within government. There are many new alternatives sources for the products we get from trees. For example, Tree decking. There a new composites that are stronger, lighter and last longer than wood. Yet, these alternatives are more expensive and some are hazardous to the environment. The majorities of these aren’t, and are decently priced for the life of the product. More and more are being produced and it lessens the amount of timber needed to be cut.

In conclusion, logging is a good thing, as long as it isn’t abused. Logging can be very useful and very harmful. It has taken some dangerous turns, but those have been fixed.

II. STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
These were the problems that have been answered in my research. 1. In what way those loggings help us?
2. What are the benefits that we get in logging?
3. How do we say that logging is important?
4. Are the youth aware in logging?
5. What will be happen if we continuous cutting trees?
III. IMPORTANCE OF THE STUDY
Logging refers to the business or work of cutting trees for timber. The profession of logging had many benefits especially to the people who work in the logging industry and also to our environment. One of its benefits was the timber, which is used for providing construction materials fuel for industries and homes as well as clearing land for development.

Another importance of it was, the fact it helped in reducing the occurrence of the forest fires. Since logging involves cutting trees, then it was highly likely that any fire started by a natural cause such as lightning will not spread quickly. As a result of logging, it was easier to undertake various forest management functions like the removal of litter. In fact logging only favors successions of plant and trees that were adapted to ecosystem.

I got interested to my research because I wanted to know that I did my research and proved that logging was very important in many cases.
IV. SCOPE AND LIMITATION OF THE STUDY
I, as the researcher conducted a survey on a 30 respondents of random students of Cavite Community Academy to aware in Cause and Effect of logging in our country.
V. DEFINITION OF TERMS
Clear cutting or block cutting – this often practiced in tropical forests for the purposes of harvesting wood and other plant products, as well as opening space for development.
Illegal logging – refers to the harvest, transportation, purchase or sale of timber in violation of laws.
Legal Logging- is the trade of tainted wood product or log, whether for export, transport, scale, purchase or import.
Logging – is the cutting, skidding, on site processing and lodging of trees or logs into trucks or skeleton cars.
VI. HYPOTHESIS

Logging helps us in a way that it gives us our natural needs. They give us the basic need of people. Logging opens up the ecosystem for...
