How quickly the jungle disappears?

Each year, the forest is destroyed (completely or almost completely) in an area equal to Belgium. The Brazilians calculated that only in their country annually disappears 80 000 square meters. km of forest, and this is happening all over the earth. Soil after felling trees remains vulnerable to tropical storms and erosion. Very quickly the fertile top layer is washed away, and the land becomes unsuitable for sowing.
