Reconnecting People and Forests

Reshaping perceptions for generations to come.

Forests and forest products make a large and diverse contribution to people’s everyday lives. As populations change and adapt over time, so do forests. As #forestproud community members, it’s our responsibility to be part of the solution to sustain and improve the health of our environment.

When reconnecting people and forests, a stronger relationship is made between essential forest benefits and products and those that use them everyday.
