Solution

The correct option is A Reforestation
Cutting down trees permanently to make land available for other uses is known as deforestation.

The construction of industries is one of the causes of deforestation. The trees in the forests are cleared to acquire land to construct industries.

Wood obtained from the forests is used for many things like making furniture, construction of houses, as fuel, manufacturing of paper etc. An increase in demand for all these things leads to an increase in the demand for wood leading to deforestation.

Poor agricultural practices are one of the major causes of deforestation. Due to application poor agricultural practices, the land cannot be utilised to its maximum for the cultivation of crops. It becomes infertile after some years. Due to this, more and more trees are cleared to acquire the fertile forest land for the cultivation of crops. This leads to deforestation.

Reforestation refers to the process of replanting trees over areas where trees have been damaged or destroyed. Reforestation is an efficient method to tackle deforestation.
