    Solution:

    Natural forests were cleared to make way for the development of timber plantations.
    In order to accommodate the expanding demand for tea, coffee, and rubber in Europe, substantial portions of natural forests were also removed. The colonial administration confiscated the forests and sold large tracts of land at low prices to European plantation owners. These lands were fenced off, their forests cleared, and tea or coffee plants were planted. Large-scale timber plantations were planted in the place of the natural forest. While it was being cleared to make room for timber farming, the natural forest was not left untouched. The fertile crop-producing fields were not replaced with timber plantations. Tribal people were expelled from forest villages.
