Forests and woods are very special places and more and more people are coming to
realise just how important they are for human survival.
We have always had a close relationship with the forest. As a source of food, fuel
and construction materials, they are second to none. The images here were taken in
both wild and managed forests.
Forests also give shelter to an extremely diverse range of species, which is another
reason for the need to keep them alive and thriving.
There is nothing to compare the feeling that you get when walking through a wooded
area. But, as few people nowadays live near a forest, I hope these tree photographs
will give you some sense of their magical properties.
