Plants absorb water from their roots which gets evaporated from leaves. This evaporated water forms the clouds, and lead to rainfall. Cutting down of trees leads to disturbance in this process of cloud formation, causing reduced rainfall.
On the other hand, the trees also help prevent flooding. The tree roots dig deep into the soil and help prevent washing away of soil in the presence of excess water. Also, the tree roots continuously absorb water from the soil, making the soil drier and able to store more rainwater.
