• 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.

Our family and friends

Love forests™ has a dedicated, happy family to support it:


Forestry Commission England


Forestry Commission (FC)

The Forestry Commission is the government department responsible for protecting and expanding Britain's forests and woodlands. It is Britain's biggest landowner and provider of outdoor recreation. It cares for more than 1,500 woodlands and forests and looks after some wonderful places to have fun and adventure in. The whole estate is 100% FSC certified.

The Forestry Commission also makes sure that people don’t cut trees down when they shouldn’t and gives out grants to encourage people to plant more trees and care for woodlands – yay!


FSC


Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)

The FSC is a charity dedicated to making sure that forests are responsibly managed. They do this by independently certifying forests and the products that come from them. Certified products carry the FSC logo.

When you see the FSC tick logo you know that you are choosing forest products with the confidence that they are not contributing to the destruction of the world’s forests. FSC protects the rights of indigenous people to use the forest and sacred areas are exempt from felling. FSC Forest owners employ local workers and provide them with training, safety equipment and a decent salary.

Remember to look out for the tick logo. If it doesn’t have the logo on it, don’t buy it!

WWF


WWF

WWF is the world’s leading conservation body. They are passionate about safeguarding the natural world, and back it up by other environmental action – tackling the global threat of climate change and helping people to change the way they live to ease pressure on natural resources.

Whether they are helping to preserve the amazing biodiversity of rainforests like the Amazon – whose survival is vital to the planet’s wellbeing – or protecting individual species, great and small, WWF is working in every continent to halt and wherever possible reverse dramatic declines in wildlife species and the destruction of the places where they live.
