Do you think there is any difference between a plantation of a eucalyptus tree or tea shrubs and a forest?
Yes, there is vast difference between plantations of eucalyptus tree/ tea shrubs and a forest.
A forest is described as a large stretch of land surrounded by trees whereas shrubs and plantations are plants and crops of smaller size which are usually grown for a specific purpose such as coffee, tea etc.
During Colonial Rule, trees in forests were cut down to create plantations of tea, coffee or rubber etc. From then on, trees are being cut down to meet a variety of needs such as wood for building ships, railways, factory works etc. In addition, in many areas, forests are being converted to plantations of quick growing trees eucalyptus or bamboo. Thus, the total area under forests have greatly reduced.
