The forests are still being chopped down, just at a lower rate than normal. Plus you are only looking at Amazon. Here in Malaysia the government just announced they want to dramatically increase their rubber tapping plantations. You think the land required for this will be rice fields or primary jungle? An internationally agreed financial incentive such as REDD would make a big difference to every country where deforestation is happening or planned.
