The Forests covered about half of the earth`s surface up to the development of early civilizations but today cover less than one-third of that area. Massive Forest clearances were a feature of man early cultures, including Ancient Assyria, Babylon, China, Egypt, Greece and Rome. Much of this forest clearance was to provide land for agriculture, although these Societies were also voracious consumers of Wood for cooking, heating, Copper smelting, Pottery making, brick-firing, house Construction and shipbuilding, and this led to deforestation wherever the forest did not have the opportunity to regenerate. For more than 10000 years the forests of Mediterranean Region have been cleared; they now cover about one-sixth of the region and those that remain, often on land that cannot readily be cultivated, have been degraded by humans and their Animals through unmanaged grazing.
