Overexploitation of forests
Fig. 88: Overexploitation of forests here is enormous. It's sick how whole slopes are completely cut down here, so that the soil is washed out by the rain because it's no longer held together by the roots. The road is buried in numerous places. You could at least leave every second tree standing when cutting down, but that's probably too complicated. It is partly reforested with small trees, but the intervention in the ecosystem is enormous and the same tree species is always planted. You will probably only notice and change it when everything is broken. "Two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, but I'm not quite sure about the universe yet."
