Abstract: 

Deforestation has been recognized as one of the biggest environmental problems, main elements of land productivity changes and one of the biggest factors which threaten world's environmental variety. Although, several studies have found evidence of an Environmental Kuznets Curve (EKC) for various measures of environmental degradation such as pollution and deforestation in Africa and America, only most studies rejected EKC for deforestation in Asia. In this paper we used a panel data set of six developing countries including Iran to study the deforestation process. Results reject EKC hypothesis for deforestation. Only coefficient of population was significant. This shown in the selected set of countries, population can explain deforestation process.
