Easter Island

This week in class I learned about the Easter Island. Been I was in this class I had never heard about the Easter Island. People on this island did not this about future generations to come on the Island they just kept cutting tress down. The main reason why this Island isn’t how it once was or in other words lively is because of deforestation.

The settlers that lived on the Easter Island were farmers, practicing agriculture, for that reason they burned down woods, opened up plenty of spaces, and began to double. Sooner then later the island had too many people and less trees and then in only a few generations later there were not trees at all on this Island.
