Explain how deforestation affects the lithosphere?
Deforestration causes acceleration of soil erosion
A rain drop can hit the ground (if it is a bare (open) land) with a great speed. However, if the space is not open (if it is covered by green plants, bushes, trees, etc.), erosion due to wind or water is minimum. When you cut down trees and eradicate bushes to make your lot open, it will become subject of erosion. This will cause rocks to become smaller particles.
