    I was unable to find an exact year to answer your question.  However, according to an article found in National Geographic, twenty percent of the Amazon rainforest has been cut down and destroyed over the past 40 years.

    It seems that during the 1970s, deforestation rates accelerated to clear land for cattle, to increase subsistence agriculture as well as for commercial agriculture, and for infrastructural improvements.
