Community Forests


Forests Bring Communities Together

Every community can be enriched by having its own forest. Community forests can be places for recreation and wildlife habitat, while also providing ecosystem services like water and air purification, flood prevention, and surface temperature reduction. Some of the forests listed here are protected and some are not, but we celebrate their existence nonetheless. Sustainable logging can be a successful component of Community Forest management if the forest is large enough and some areas are left undisturbed.
