"Better" doesn't work to describe anything unless you include what the comparison is based on. Animals are "better" at surviving in the wilderness but nowhere close to humans at producing their own food.
Humans are not only capable of cutting down trees, we're also capable of planting them. The problem is priorities. Until we learn that the survival of mankind is more important than nationalities, races and religions, the current, destructive priorities will remain the same.
Yes but there is no need to plant trees, animals let the trees plant themselves
Rob, animals may plant tree's by eating the seeds and leave out feces, where the seeds are deposited from an animal; but it is also our job as well to plant the tree's as well, not the animals alone. We can't survive the world without them and nature, and nature and animals can't survive this polluted Earth unless we help them and the Earth by cleaning our environment, finding better fuel resources, and help plant and animal alike by giving them the life they need to live on this planet. We only have one Earth, there won't be another until there will be another big bang of the universe or a great creator creates it.
