Deforestation in the Amazon area is driven mainly by industry and agriculture. Mato Grosso means "Thick Woods" and is the name of an inland state of central Brazil, where widespread forest clearing has had a dramatic impact on the land. Forest clearing has been centralized mostly along new roadways cut through the jungle.
