Why can farmers cut down the rainforest so cheaply?



  1. 0 Votes

    Its because many poorer countries do not have any laws or sanctions against cutting down rainforests and even if they do they are not enforced. Burning down rainforests to make room for crops, the slash and burn phenomena, is often times a cheap, convenient way to clear ground for growing cash crops. These practices have severely damaged many of the world’s rainforests and will only be curtailed when governments start to enforce the local laws and rules.
