Forests are fundamental to the quality of the air we breathe and to the quality of the river water that cities consume directly or indirectly. They also play a key role in combating climate change, as they absorb and store CO2 in their biomass, preventing it from entering the atmosphere. Forests help minimize the impact of storms and floods by controlling soil erosion, as tree roots strengthen the soil. Have you ever imagined what life without forests would be like? We take and process forest raw materials, such as wood and lumber, and use them for a variety of products, from toilet paper, napkins, corks or notebooks to heavier items such as tables, chairs or plain wood for burning. Our society is not yet ready to give up this resource.
