Forests and Climate:
Climate change is one of the greatest threats to forest health, but they are also among the best natural solutions to combat the effects of climate change.
Forests and Water:
More than half of our drinking water comes from forested ecosystems and trees and forests play a critical role in protecting our nation’s waterways.
Forests and Wildlife:
Approximately 80 percent of all terrestrial biodiversity, including wildlife, is in forests, where climate change and other forces are threatening habitats.
Forests and People:
Nearly 3 million jobs in the U.S. are tied to forests, and trees and forests benefit people in countless other ways, from better health to lower energy bills.
