International Day of ForestsThe United Nations General Assembly has proclaimed 21 March the International Day of Forests. The Day will celebrate and raise 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.

Previously, 2011 was designated as the International Year of Forests by the UN to raise awareness of issues affecting the world’s forests.
