what is the difference between reforestation and deforestation?

Dear Student,

Deforestation is the indiscriminate cutting down of trees for human usage. This reduces the green cover of the particular area.  Reforestation involves the planting of new trees in place of the ones cut down. Reforestation also occurs naturally.

Hope this clears your doubt,
