How to use "Denuded" in context?

When most people think about forests, they envision lush trees, dense undergrowth, and a wild and untamed wilderness. This is because the majority of forests in North America are denuded forests. Denuded forests are typically those that have had a large portion of the trees removed, leaving an exposed and barren landscape.

Most denuded forests are located in the western United States, where large areas have been cleared for agricultural or urban development. The loss of trees causes the soil to become infertility and erosion is often a major problem. Nutrient and water reserves are quickly depleted and the land cannot support plant life.
