• We ♥ forests. Trees are vital, beautiful and provide a home to ¾ of all plant and animal species on Earth.
  • More than a billion of us rely on the resources that forests provide, but we forget how much we rely on them. Newspapers, aspirin, furniture - the list is endless…
  • Never has it been more essential to highlight the importance of trees at home and around the world.
  • 2011 is the International Year of Forests.
  • Sign up and tell us why you love forests, make a pledge to help forests and spread the word about Love Forests.
  • Let's work TOGETHER and MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

What is Love forests?

Love forests brings people and local and global organisations together to raise awareness of the importance of forests and forest products.

We believe that if we engage people with the tree, woodland or forest on their doorstep they will better appreciate and value the world's forests and the planet that we live on. 

We will make this happen by combining, for the first time, local and global organisations, access to UK woodlands and forests and the latest digital technology.

We think that it should be easy to understand and connect to forests.

What better time to start this than in 2011 – the United Nations ‘International Year of Forests’!

Why?

Trees, woods and forests are vital for our future.

Forests provide homes to people and habitats to biodiversity, they are a source of medicine, food and clean water; they store carbon, and provide space for people to explore and enjoy. They play an essential role in maintaining a stable global climate and environment. Forests are critical to the survival and well being of people everywhere, all 7 billion of us.

The United Nations has designated 2011 as the International year of Forests, to raise global awareness of the urgent need to conserve forest resources and to highlight their importance in everyday life (www.un.org/forests). 

Who are we?

We have a lovely family comprising of the Forestry Commission, WWF, and the Forest Stewardship Council. We also have lots of wonderful friends including the Woodland Trust, BEAR nibbles and Pond Conservation.
