Connecting to our Forests
Forests and green spaces are linked to our health – they reduce our stress, speed up recovery and improve our learning. Trees and forests are integral components of healthy ecosystems that support healthy human populations. By connecting with the forest, we can start to understand how important it is in our lives.
Having healthy forests in Ontario takes planning. We do this by taking into account all of the values – like recreation, forest products, and ensuring healthy habitats for all of our wildlife species.
