Forests provide people around the world with recreation, cultural significance, health and livelihood. They are home to many species of plants and animals, their trees capture and store atmospheric carbon, and they help supply clean water. These complex ecosystems are critical resources for all living things. Thankfully, they are also a renewable resource, if used responsibly and sustainably, and using them in this way contributes to their value. Nevertheless, forests in certain parts of the world are more at risk today than at any time in human history, and we must all join together to preserve this precious resource.
