The forest play an important role in maintaining the balance between oxygen and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. As we know plants for their food nutrition requirement make use of process of photosynthesis, in which they consume Carbon Dioxide, released by the living organism from the environment.
The biggest user of oxygen is the steel industry ( they liquify 1000's of tons of liquid oxygen from the air every day for the furnaces and to burn out impurities out of the metals) and even with that enourmous consumption are oxygen hasn't been decreasing.
