One reason why rainforest trees are being cut down is for logging.
The wood from the trees which are being cut down is being used for many different things. Just think about how many different things in the classroom are made from wood!
Over 36 trees are being cut down every single minute.
Cutting these trees down means that the habitat which many animals live in is being destroyed. This means that they don't have anywhere to live which is putting them in danger.
