The EU Forest Action Plan

  • May 05, 2015
Forests are an important part of Europe's heritage and identity. When satellites observe Europe from the skies, they see large masses of green. Forests and other wooded areas cover over 40% of the European Union of 27 Member States. But this huge area does not always receive the public attention it deserves, though forests have been essential throughout our history – for fuel, for shelter, for the air we breathe. Forests also contribute to our quality of life and the social and cultural dimensions of forests are increasingly appreciated by our society.
