• 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.

I will regularly visit my local woodland or forest.

When I buy wood and paper I will only choose products with the FSC logo. If I can't find them, I'll ask my retailer to stock FSC  products.
