2011 - Great Year for Forests


By Richard - Posted on 03 December 2010

There's a time for everything and 2011 is the time for forests. The United Nations General Assembly declared 2011 as the International Year of Forests. The purpose is to raise awareness on sustainable management, conservation and sustainable development of all types of forests. Considering how important forests are to the Earth, I'd say it's about time. You can get information about what the UN is doing here http://www.un.org/en/events/iyof2011/. For United States specific events, check out the Year of the Forest page at the National Association of State Foresters Web Site. And I'll be posting information on this site throughout the year on what impact this has.
