The forest - a wonderful place of peace, magical natural scenery and a habitat for numerous species of animals, plants and fungi. We humans appreciate it as a supplier of raw materials and a natural barrier against avalanches, mudflows and floods. With their “green lungs" the forests also are vital sources of oxygen and climate protectors of our earth.
Massive slash-and-burn clearances, climate change, pests and diseases are putting forests at risk worldwide. Let’s take good care of them.
