The United Nations has declared 2011 the International Year of the Forest.
UN link: http://www.un.org/en/events/iyof2011/

The site states that it is a global platform to celebrate people's action to sustainably manage, conserve, develop the world's forests by raising awareness.

Parks in our district are kicking it off with mostly kids activities, tree identification.  I will be quietly appreciating my little slice of forest and rejoice that I tuned out the people who recommended that I clear cut my heavily treed ravine.

amen, maybe this means that there will be more organizations handing out more tree seedlings, esp on arbor day..woot woot..

I have one large red pine tree in our front yard that came from a seedling my son carried home from school when he was tiny, on an arbor day years ago, (he is nearly 36), and I have always wished schools and other organizations were more active in the seedling give aways, esp to children.
