We are uniquely reliant on forests – without them, life as we know it would not exist. We’ve exploited our forests through the ages, but if we give them the chance, they will bounce back. The air we breathe, the water we drink, the energy we consume - it all starts with processes controlled by trees and plants. And when it comes to the fight against climate change trees are our biggest ally.

How To Save Our Forests

Sir David Attenborough explains how we can protect our forests and allow them to recover by drawing on their natural resilience and improve our own practices to benefit these important ecosystems.

A healthy forest needs predators. After losing wolves from much of Europe, they're returning to our forests.

Trees Are Rainmakers

Trees make rain. But when trees are bulldozed, we lose the services they provide, which protect and nurture us with a safe climate, clean air and water, and healthy soil and food.
