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. The theme for each International Day of Forests is chosen by the Collaborative Partnership on Forests.
The celebration also involves bringing awareness in people about the anatomy of forestry like protection, production, recreation and the major contribution to the living organisms. March 21st was chosen to be observed as World Forest Day for it is both the autumnal equinox in the Southern Hemisphere and the vernal equinox in the Northern Hemisphere. It is the duty of each and every individual to participate in deforestation and creation of new forests.
The forests help to control our planet’s temperature, provide us with oxygen and absorb pollution. It is not only home for all living species but also the forest is one of the best and continuous sources of rich nutrients. Studying in deep will make us realize that the place we are living today was initially a forest area.
