Make a summary of the passage below, in which you describe the importance of forest reserves and the consequences of exploiting the forests. Your summary should nto be longer than 50 words. Begin your summary as follows:

Forest reserves, protected by law, are strictly prohibited ...

 
The environment should not be sacrificed in the name of development. This is especially so in forest reserve areas where logging is strictly prohibited. No one has the right to cut down the trees there, including licensed logging firms. All catchment areas fall under the Protected Areas and Protected Places Act 1959. Any encroachment into these catchment areas will affect the quality and quantity of water. As we know, deforestation causes irreversible ecological damage that will lead to soil pollution. It hastens soil erosion which in turn affects water quality. This will then result in higher cost of water treatment. Trees are therefore important for the protection of water catchment, carbon balance, evapotranspiration, photosynthesis and production of wood.
 

Points to include:

* forest reserves not for logging

* maintain ecological balance

* protect catchment areas

* deforestation -- soil erosion, water pollution and higher cost of water treatment

Answer
 

Forest reserves protected by law, are strictly prohibited from logging. The trees protect the catchment areas and maintain the ecological balance. Any trees felled in the reserves will cause soil erosion and affect the quantity and quality of water, raising the cost of water treatment.. ( 45 words )
