Yes, by quite a bit. First, trees act as the lungs of the Earth, especially old growth forests and rain forests. Less trees means less plants cycling CO2 back into oxygen; that means more CO2 in the atmosphere contributing to a greenhouse effect. Secondly, different land uses will have different effects on surface temperature. Forests tend to keep temperatures reasonably cool, compared to pasture land or cities, which have a warming effect.
