I am looking for information regarding the effects on the deciduous forests from humans. I am looking for current information as to what impact people have had on these forest regions. I thank you in advance for your time and answer.

There are direct impacts such as forest clearing for agriculture and forestry practices, and indirect effects such as pollution, acid rain, and climate change. You could probably search for "anthropogenic effects forests"
