United Nations proclaims 21 March as International Day of Forests

March 19th, 2014 by Richard Lord

The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 21 March as the International Day of Forests.

The Day celebrates and raises awareness of the importance of all types of forests.

On each International Day of Forests, countries are encouraged to undertake local, national and international efforts to organize activities involving forests and trees, such as tree planting campaigns.

The Guernsey Society of the Men of the Trees and the Guernsey Tree Wardens undertake regular tree plantings and tree maintenance programmes in Guernsey.
