World Forestry Day is an international event celebrated on 21 March every year as people take time to consider the benefits of forests to the community - such as catchment protection, providing habitat for plants, areas for recreation, education and scientific study, and as a source of many products including timber and honey. World Forestry Day also aims to provide opportunities for people to learn how forests can be managed and used sustainably for these many purposes.


2011 is International Year of Forests: The UN General Assembly has proclaimed 2011 as the International Year of Forests (IYF) and has invited governments, the United Nations system, NGOs, the private sector and the public at large to come together. The overall objective: to raise awareness and strengthen the sustainable management, conservation and sustainable development of all types of forests for the benefit of current and future generations.
