For every tree felled in the Nigerian forests the lumberjack has to grow four trees. This would prevent soil erosion, scarcity of wood and scarcity of food for animals living in the forests. This can also lead to climate changes. As well as growing new trees , more research has to be undertaken to sustain the survival of the fittest.
