Forests are integral to many landscapes and provide habitat, food and ecosystems services to so many forms of life. However, many of our forests are being degraded from deforestation and fires, with striking images of record forest fires in Australia and the western U.S. and large-scale logging in the Amazon rainforest within our newsfeeds. But it’s not all bad news – major restoration efforts, such as the U.N. Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, are bringing global attention and funding on regrowing lost forests, and tree-planting is having a heyday in the general zeitgeist. Here is a selection of the best articles exploring forests and restoration in Landscape News.
